Lent is a season of 40 days (not counting Sundays) leading up to Easter. It’s a time when Christians take time to grow in faith, pay more attention to God, and get ourselves ready to tell the sacred story of the death and resurrection of Jesus. In order to help us reflect on the story of Jesus in a new way this Lent, we are offering a different kind of Lenten devotional.
Throughout the season of Lent (beginning on February 17 and going through April 4), we will send you reflections written by a pastor or Christian scholar including one by our own Pastor Hung Su as well as Rev. Dr. Joe Lenow (Pastor Larry’s son). The theme this year is “Images of Jesus in the Old Testament.” Each devotional will highlight a place in the Old Testament that serves as a “teaser” for Jesus.
Each entry will focus on a story or image from the Old Testament. Stories like God protecting his faithful servants in the fiery furnace or providing manna in the desert; images like the suffering servant from Isaiah or the Paschal Lamb from the Exodus. These devotionals are being shared at churches across Virginia and beyond. (Devotions will come a few times a week during the season of Lent.)
If you’re interested in receiving these devotionals you can sign up to receive them by TEXT or by EMAIL.
The 2021 Lenten Devotional will begin on Ash Wednesday, February 17 and then will be sent each Monday and Friday during the season of Lent. There will also be a devotional entry for each day of Holy Week.
