2021 Lenten Reconciliation Devotional Project

The 2021 Lenten theme was Reconciliation. As a devotional experience, the Faith Formation Ministry invited the congregation to select topics where we as a society particularly need reconciliation, choose a scripture, and write a brief reflection and prayer. These devotionals were then read and filmed at key locations around our community. The videos are below, and the texts for the devotionals can be found here.
