Eight writers have prepared devotions for a Lenten journey, to be read on a computer, tablet or smartphone. To sign up for this devotional, visit http://www.lutheranchurch.org/. Each devotion contains a meditation on scripture, questions for pondering alone or in a group and a seven-word prayer for use throughout the day.
The project was led by Pastor Paul Walters, Church of the Master, Troy, Mich., and formerly of Grace.Massaponax. Other writers, serving in the Synod, are Pastor Kate Costa, St. Luke, Culpeper, and Pastor David Drebes, Prince of Peace, Orkney Springs/Basye. Other contributors who have served in the Synod are Pastor Kristin Berglund, former intern at St.Peter, Stafford, and now studying clinical and mental health counseling in Wisconsin; Pastor Robert Holley, Summerville, S.C., a retired Synod pastor, and Pastor Laura Sinche, campus pastor in Baltimore and formerly of Christ, Fredericksburg. Pastors James Authier and Terry Daly of Michigan also contributed devotions.
As the introduction states, the authors “hope these brief devotions will become part of your Lenten habit and through this simple practice Jesus may work through you doing that which is good and gracious in the sight of God.”
