You’ll find Scripture readings along with meditations and prayers written by the director and staff of the Presbyterian Office of Public Witness in Washington: the Rev. Jimmie Hawkins, Catherine Gordon and Christian Brooks.

Lenten Devotion Booklet

Tasha and Phil Blackburn, co-pastors at First Fort Smith created a Lenten Devotion Booklet in which they employ various spiritual practices which have served to shape, deepen and even reboot their faith. They created this for their congregants, but have shared it in the publisher format for other churches to use as well. The only church specific things that will be need to edited are the third paragraph on the intro page and the logo on the back. They share scripture readings and reflections for each day as well as well as share about the spiritual practices of Giving, Fasting, and Prayer.

This landing page format does not allow sharing a publisher file. If you would like to have the file, email Julie Price at julietannerprice@gmail.com and I will send it to you.
