Lenten Devotional 2018: This Happened.


 This year the theme is: This Happened.

What are the core stories that your family tells or that you tell?  What do those stories speak about who you are and what matters to you?  When have you encountered surprising grace or unlikely visits from the Holy?  

We ask that you write up those stories and submit them to Gwen Ravenhorst at You can submit a favorite poem if that seems best.  The stories will be sent out daily to our email list.  We will print up a limited number of paper copies for those who don’t use email. Deadline for submission is January 31st.

Ash Wednesday (February 14th) marks the first day of Lent this year. If you are subscribed to our online mailing list, you will be receiving Lent daily devotional messages straight to your email inbox! You will also see these posted on our Facebook page.
