*New* Contributors are needed for our Daily Lenten Devotional
Online | Begins February 17 with Ash Wednesday

Lent is a season of forty days, not counting Sundays, which begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday. The forty days represents the time Jesus spent in the wilderness, enduring the temptation of Satan and preparing to begin his ministry.

This year, we would like to provide a short reflection for our community each day of Lent. Contributors are needed!

Please consider signing up to share a short reflection. It's easy. Really. It can be a few written sentences, a song or poem, a video you've recorded -- anything goes.
