Lenten Devotions & Resources

The Lenten season is a time for somber reflection on Jesus' wandering in the wilderness and the ways in which we ourselves wander.  Lent is an opportunity for us to re-examine our thoughts and actions and the ways in which they bring us nearer to or separate us from unity with God and the rest of creation.

For those interested in centering themselves in disciplines of care for the Earth and increased attention to climate change, we recommend the following resources.  We hope that they aid clergy and lay leaders alike to observe Lent in positive and creation-honoring ways.

This is a compilation of Lenten resources on the internet.  Clicking on some of the links below will take you away from Earth Ministry's website.
