2021 Lenten Reconciliation Devotional Project

This year's Lenten theme is 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 can be viewed at the links below, and the texts for the devotionals can be found here.
