As PWRDF’s Creation Care: Climate Action education focus moves into its second year, now centering on gender, we have invited three women who participated in COP26 to enter into a Lenten conversation.

Our resource begins on the first Sunday in Lent, March 6, 2022 and goes until Easter Eve, April 16, as follows:
  • Sundays & Mondays – The Rev. Alecia Greenfield (Church of the Holy Cross, Vancouver)
  • Tuesdays & Wednesdays – Stephanie (Taddy) Stringer (PWRDF Montreal)
  • Thursdays & Fridays – Karri Munn-Venn (Senior Policy Analyst with Citizens for Public Justice, Ottawa)
  • Saturdays – Take a Sabbath Rest with a PWRDF story
Each day our writers invite you to read their selected scripture, reflect and pray with them. Subscribe below to receive the daily reflections in your inbox and deepen your connection with PWRDF. Learn more about the resource at
The resource will also be available March 1 to download as a PDF, for those who wish to view it in its entirety.
Launch Webinar
Join us on Ash Wednesday, March 2 at 11 a.m. ET to kick off the conversation. You will get a preview of what you can expect in this year’s Lent reflections and also meet two of our writers.
