As we look forward to the Lenten journey with our sisters and brothers in faith from around the world, I encourage you to share the news that the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in West Virginia will again offer the encouraging and challenging words of many of its ministers to you, your congregation, and anyone else who desires to receive them with Lenten Prayerscapes

Postings of the daily devotional readings will begin at this site on the eve of Ash Wednesday (late on Feb. 24).  Those who subscribe via email (see link at right) will have them in their inbox the next morning and every day of Lent.  As in Advent, the readings will also be linked on our homepage for those who wonder through, and available to congregations and individuals who wish to download them to print as a weekly bulletin insert, or an inclusive booklet for the entire season.

The responses to the Advent adventure were so positive, and the encouragement was so strong, we are going to make the effort again.  We deeply appreciate the devotion of our clergy, and of Rev. Magdalyn Sebastian of Wheeling who has taken the lead in soliciting the writings.

Please join us for the Lenten journey, and share this news with your church family and friends!

In Christ’s Love,

David Chafin, Deputy Regional Minister
