Holston Conference 

Lenten Devotion

As we follow along on the journey with Jesus to the cross, the season of Lent calls us to a time of prayer, fasting, and giving. Lent is also a time of contemplation, a time of dedication, and a time of preparation.

Our hope and prayer is that these reflections might encourage you as well as enhance and deepen your experience of the Lenten journey this year. Please read the Scripture for each day, and then read the reflection, followed by the prayer, closing thought, or challenge offered by the author.


Why Am I Receiving This?

As we enter into a time of uncertainty, fear, and pain following our special called General Conference, the offices of Communications and Clergy Services would like to present this devotional to you. Clergy and Lay, from across our conference, has spent time in prayer while composing this Lenten devotional to offer hope and love to all who would read it. Beginning tomorrow morning, you will receive an email with the day's devotion. If you are not interested in receiving this devotional, we invite you to scroll to the bottom of this page where you will find options to unsubscribe or update your subscription preferences.


Be Hope,
