Additional Lenten Information


This is supposed to be added to the “Food for Thought” page. I’m still learning the ins and outs of WordPress, so please bear with me…. Thanks. 

 

Bishop Lane invites individuals and congregations to join him in this challenge starting in Lent.  Following this schedule of daily readings, you will be able to read the entire Bible in a year, from Lent to Lent.  Read devotionally—not as an intellectual or academic exercise.  (Piety, rather than study.)  Each day’s readings include 3 chapters of an Old Testament book; one Psalm; and one chapter from the New Testament.  Click…
