WHAT IF Devotions for Lent
What If Devotions for Lent
What if each clergy and layperson in the West Virginia Conference made time to intentionally fast, pray, listen and respond to God’s call on our lives, individually and as the church? What if we intentionally entered into these spiritual practices to offer God’s love, grace and healing power to those being affected by the opioid epidemic? What if we did this over the Lenten season in order to seek God’s direction for how we as individuals and congregations can respond to this crisis in a way that offers life? There is no reason not to do this! Financially, It costs nothing. To enter into this process does not require another night out for meetings. What does this require of us? It requires that each Christian set aside time to listen for God’s call on each of our lives. What if – in this upcoming Lenten season – we really listened and responded? We might just be a part of God’s life-giving resurrection to a person, a family, a community, a world! Rev. Dr. Barry Steiner Ball has provided both an Educational and Devotional piece for each week in Lent, to use for individual reflection.
