An Invitation to the Lenten season

The season of Lent in the Christian calendar begins on Ash Wednesday and continues for the 40 days leading up to Easter. This year Lent began on February 26th. 

"Throughout scripture, some of the most important, transformational moments for our spiritual ancestors happened in wilderness places. The wilderness was a place people were driven to enter in exile, transition, and discernment," said Katie Harmon-McLaughlin. "Ours seems to be a wilderness time. What if this Lent we rested for a while in this wilderness place to look around and appreciate what is already here?" 

During Lent, we will share a story to dwell on throughout the week with questions for reflection. This slow, repeated practice of sacred reading and reflection is an invitation to simplicity and deepening during the the Lenten season. 

You can follow along each day through Daily Bread online (!/) or via email for the full experience. You can subscribe to receive emails from Daily Bread by clicking Subscribe on the above link. We'll also be sharing elements of each weekly focus through eNews,, and social media. 

We hope you'll join us in this intentional practice of returning, little by little, to the awareness of oneness with God who desires wholeness for us and all creation.
