Lent Online #2

labyrinth

Welcome to Lent Online!

Each Tuesday afternoon you will find a new Lenten Devotion posted here.  Together we will explore a different prayer practice each week.  The image above is a prayer path called a labyrinth, used as a symbol of our journey with prayer during Lent.  We invite you to make use of Lent Online when and where your schedule permits…spread it out through the week, select one day to make time to experience the entire devotion, or even repeat it several times as you desire.

–Your Lent Online partners,

Rev. Jennifer Barchi, Rev. Ron Hankins, Rev. Deborah McEachran
