Online Lenten devotions offer college faculty and student voices; Reflections begin Ash Wednesday at www.goshen.edu/devotions
GOSHEN, Ind. – 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. 22 (Ash Wednesday) and culminating on April 8 (Easter), Goshen College students, faculty and staff will provide weekday reflections based on lectionary Scripture passages, available online, by daily e-mail or via RSS feed. To access the devotions or sign up to receive them daily in your inbox, go to: www.goshen.edu/devotions.
Organizers said 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.
The popularity of the devotions continues to grow each year and there are now more than 9,000 online subscribers. Since 2001, Goshen College annually celebrates special seasons of the church calendar, particularly Advent and Lent, with online devotions.
