                  Our 2018 Lenten Study 
                Begins Wed., February 14
                     "Pauses for Lent: 
                 40 Words for 40 Days"
This Lent, what about taking a "pause" each day?  This year, beginning of Wednesday, February 14 (Ash Wednesday), and running for the 40 days of Lent plus the Sundays (Lent's 40 day's do not include Sundays), you are being offered an opportunity to "pause" each day leading up to Easter. 
Taking time to pause for a few minutes each day can help us maintain balance in our lives. In this simple yet not simplistic book, Trevor Hudson focuses on one biblical word of wonder for each day of Lent. His insightful reflections on the word for each day invite individuals and groups to a deeper understanding of Lent.
This is the same author who wrote our 2017 Advent Study and, like that study, he offers a simple daily practice that helps us become involved in the Lenten drama. Hudson's minimalist approach and conversational writing lead us to discover how we can open our hearts and lives more generously to God.
