2021 SALEM LENT DEVOTIONAL

JOIN US IN CREATING A LENTEN DEVOTIONAL!

We are using this year’s theme: “Stories of Healing – The Gospel Written by Mark”. The texts that will help you are: MARK 2:1-12, 3:1-6, 5:24-34, 8:22-26, 5:21-24a, 35-43. We invite everyone to take some time to think about stories of healing in your own lives and consider writing and submitting a short (maximum of 250 words, Arial 12 font) devotion/reflection. Please take some time to read one or two of the texts listed and perhaps draw inspiration for your personal devotion/reflection. Entries must be submitted to Michelle via e-mail by Friday, February 5th at 9:00 am. We need to have 40 entries. Don’t worry, you don’t have to be a published author to participate!! Feel free to submit a short poem or even a picture relating to the theme if that’s what inspires you!! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the church office. The devotional will be sent to everyone via e-mail on Tuesday, February 16th. We will have some large print copies available for who needs one. Thank you for being a part of this project!

Take a look at these examples from the devotional that the congregation created in 2008 to get some ideas: Winds Of Change
