Lenten Devotions 2017:
“Sustaining Strength for the Struggle”

Email Header Graphic - v5-01

Join us for our SFTS Lenten Devotion conversation. Each morning, you will receive a Lenten Devotion written by members of the SFTS community — faculty, students, staff, trustees and alumni.

Our intention is to offer sustaining practices and prayer for these days of activism, distress, empowerment, and struggle.  During the season of Lent, we travel liturgically with Christ through the whole of life, to the cross, and beyond into resurrection.  Accordingly, Lent offers us the metaphors of wilderness wandering and a journey that is not easy.

These are tough times – and we have been encouraged here at SFTS by the text from Hebrews that reminds us that “since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin which so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race that is marked out before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus the author and perfecter of our faith.”  With all that in mind, we hope in this Lenten devotional series to offer help and support and practices for living our life of faith in the world with perseverance.

March 13: God Among Us

Like Moses and the people, we are thirsting for the water of life in a parched place and time.

March 3: A Gift from the Past

On our Lenten journey, we will crawly, stumble, walk, run, and sometimes even soar as we respond to the call for justice.
