This study was created for Lent 2015. It is suitable for individual or congregational/small group study. It focuses on five spiritual practices: prayer, repentance, love of neighbor, fasting and simplicity, and connecting to the saints.
One day each week includes a reflection on one of the five practices, written by clergy and lay persons from the Episcopal Diocese of West Texas. The material is posted both in text and audio recordings.
The study also includes introductory messages each week and special reflections for the week of Ash Wednesday and Holy Week, all by the Rev. Drs. Jane Patterson and John Lewis.
You can learn about each writer at the About the Authors link, below.
If you are new to spiritual practices, read Before you Begin, below. A Guide for Congregations and Small Groups was originally set up for use in Lent 2015 but may be useful at any time.
