For this year’s Lenten Guide, each member of the Council staff chose a verse from a favorite hymn to write about. We will post their reflections throughout Lent, for Ash Wednesday, each Sunday, and during Holy Week.
Some of us have chosen hymns from the faith tradition of our youth, others songs that we might not sing much but with lyrics that have meaning. As often happens, themes emerge that resonate in our work even though each reflection was written independently of others. They will be all be curated with a title that begins “2017 Lenten Guide” so that you can identify them easily.
As we enter these 40 days together, we hope that you will find the words inspiring, reassuring, or thought-provoking. At the very least, we hope they will serve as a reminder that no one walks these days alone.
