5th Sunday in Lent

March 29 2020                                                              Scripture: Ezekiel 37:1-14; Romans 8:1-11; John 11:1-45 How are you feeling in the midst of the current situation? What is encouraging you these days? Frequently I see or hear the statement, “We’re all in this together.” True and encouraging. It does help knowing that you’re not the only one going through this.

Lenten devotionals

We will all benefit from additional time, if brief, spent reading God’s Word, meditating on it and responding to it.

May our love for and knowledge of Holy Scripture grow, in some small way, as we take a Lenten walk together, through the Word! This year’s Lenten devotional, A Lenten Walk Through the Word,Read More →
