We provide meditations for the 40 days of Lent – Sundays are not included by tradition. Chapel parishioners volunteered to read the Scripture assigned for each day according to the Lectionary, pray about what they had read, and then write a meditation based on how God spoke to them through the readings.

From the Blog
Lent is a time for listening for God. We listen for God by removing those things which might occupy our conscious mind (Facebook, television, holding grudges, to name a few examples – for me at least!), we take on a discipline or project by which we serve as the hands of God, and sometimes we listen for God … (spoiler alert) by listening.
We hope these forty days will be holy, transformative, and joyful. That’s right, I said joyful. Though Lent adheres to a more quiet and penitential tone, that does not mean we are not joyful. After all, the word Lent comes from an Anglo-Saxon word meaning “Spring” and when we tend to think of Spring we think of new life.
Lately I’ve been reflecting on the idea of the Beloved Community; what it means, who is included, how we can create it in our lives. In an ideal world, all people would live in this community where there is no hate or violence, poverty or bigotry. We would live with our hearts full of love so strong there wouldn’t be room for anything else.
