The season of Lent is the 40 days (not counting Sundays) leading up to Easter.* Often during this time, we take the opportunity to recommit to a way of life that helps us to deepen our spiritual lives. That could be anything from a fast of some sort to taking a yoga class to turning off the television. One simple thing that some of us appreciate is taking a few moments each day for reading that help us to refocus, and engage with what is meaningful. The Stillspeaking Writers Group of the UCC does a great job of giving us thoughtful, fresh takes on the scripture passages of the season in their 2015 Lent Devotionals called “Re-lent”. Each day provides a reflection on a daily scripture passage and a word beginning with the prefix “re”.
You can find free copies of Re-lent in the church narthex, provided by the Deacons for your use.
*This year Lent begins on Wednesday, February 18.
