Welcome to Goshen College Lenten Devotions 2013: Beginning Feb. 13 (Ash Wednesday)

Goshen College again offers an online resource to help believers make time and space in their hearts and minds to reflect during the season of Lent.

Beginning Feb. 13 (Ash Wednesday) and culminating on March 31 (Easter), Goshen College students, faculty and staff will provide weekday reflections based on the Sunday’s upcoming lectionary Scripture passages. Many writers will reflect on the theme: “Ashamed No More,” taken from Mennonite Church USA worship resources.

The devotions will reflect honestly on the Scriptures and offer words of assurances of faith. The spiritual offerings will include poetry, personal stories, reflections and prayers, all intended to more closely examine the call to change and follow Christ.

Since 2001, Goshen College annually celebrates special seasons of the church calendar, particularly Advent and Lent, with online devotions.

  5. I look forward joyfully to continue receiving your Advent/Lenten reflections, especially from the students. Amazingly, I have tried to financially support your effort but have been stymied. Maybe it’s because I’m computer-challenged! Keep up the holy work!

  7. I’ve been getting these devotions for the last few years and I really do enjoy them and sometimes I get to enjoy writings from a former student or someone that I’ve met in the faith and that is really exciting. Keep up the great work for God’s Kingdom here on Earth. Cinda Moore
