Pathways Through Lent

We could use a few more brief reflections for our online daily Lenten devotionals. Entries may be written individually or as a group (e.g. on behalf of a committee or a family) and should be no more than 250 words long. Your reflection can be inspired by the appointed scripture verse of the day (which we will share when we confirm your assigned date) or some other Lenten or spiritual topic. Pathways Through Lent will launch on Ash Wednesday, February 26. We will assign you a date later in the series and a deadline for your submission.
Note: if you were subscribed to Pathways in 2019, you should automatically begin receiving devotionals on the morning of February 26; if you would like to sign up for the daily email, please subscribe here.
