Today marks the beginning of Lent. Those interested in taking on a Lenten discipline may be interested in the following resources:
‘Lenten Listening: Hearing God during Lent’ – this is a project of the Temiskaming Deanery and features meditations and art from people within our own diocese. Download the booklet here.
‘Ecce Homo: Poems for Lent and Holy Week’, compiled by Karen A. Keely for individual and group meditation. Download the resource here.
‘A Carbon Fast for Lent’ – a resource designed to help us think about our use of the earth’s resources, recommended by our Social Justice and Mission Committee. Find the document here.
‘Gospel Meditations and Prayer for Lent’ – a collaborative project by the professors of Wycliffe College, available online and as a weekly e-mail. Available at the web site here.
Whatever resources you use as an individual or in your parish, let us pray for one another that this Lent would be a season of reconciliation with God and within his Church, that we might know the joy of forgiveness and deeper fellowship.
Wishing you a holy Lent,
