Lenten Devotional Signup Form

Messiah Lenten Devotional Signup Form

We're looking ahead to compile our first Messiah Daily Lenten Devotional and need your help!   We are taking a look at Images of God, inspired by Wearing God: Clothing, Laughter, Fire, and Other Overlooked Ways of Meeting God by Lauren F. Winner. The Words and their accompanying verses are an eclectic mix of images, metaphors, and phrases that range from the familiar to the peculiar to the intangible. However, what unifies them all is that they are faith-filled images that have served as ways to understand God throughout the centuries.

Each day during Lent, we will have a scripture passage and a brief devotion shared by someone in the Messiah community. We'll provide a word of inspiration and verse, you write a 150-200 word devotion and a short prayer. We're planning on providing a print copy in advance of Lent for all our church family. 

Take some time today to look through and sign up for your image on our sign-up form!  Please sign up for your devotion by January 17th.  You will need email your finished devotional to Kristin Isom at [email protected]. We will also accept handwritten devotions by mail or drop off, and we will prepare them for booklet.  All devotionals are due by February 1st. 

Whether it is through finding a new image that resonates or rediscovering an old one that bears new meaning, with these 40 images we hope to provide a backdrop for contemplation and reflection as we journey through this sacred time together.

We ask that you find the image of God that you want to reflect on, click on the "Signup" next to the image and scripture and then hit the "submit and signup button" at the bottom of the page

Please join us in writing a devotional for our 2021 Devotional Booklet!
