News & Events
I invite you, therefore, in the name of the Church, to the observance of a holy Lent, by self-examination and repentance; by prayer, fasting, and self-denial; and by reading and meditating on God’s holy Word.
-The Book of Common Prayer
Take up the challenge by committing to a spiritual discipline for the 40 days of Lent.
Here are some ideas:
-Begin your day with Morning Prayer or end your day with Compline. These ancient prayer services are one of the great gifts of the Anglican tradition. Pray with a recording here or find all the prayers and readings online here.
-Create more space for prayer and reflection by “unplugging” one day per week or for one hour each day – no email, social media, Netlfix, music, or TV.
-Attend Incarnation’s Lenten Coffee Talks on Religious Experience at 12:30 PM each Sunday in Lent (except March 16, the day of the Bishop’s visit).
-40 Days, 40 Acts of Generosity. Do something kind for someone else, even something very small, on each day of Lent. This website has an idea for each day.
-Attend church every Sunday in Lent when you are in town.
Let us know how it is going! You are invited to share what challenge you’ve chosen, as well as any reflections you have on the experience, in the comment section of this page.
