Lenten Devotionals 2013

Continuing in the style of the 2012 Advent devotionals, Bethany teaching and administrative faculty have written devotionals for Lent 2013. Several devotionals for Ash Wednesday, each Sunday in Lent, and Easter are listed here, all based on Lenten lectionary texts. It is hoped that the insights, meditations, and prayers shared by the faculty will be meaningful and useful to congregations, organizations, and individuals throughout the season.

Each devotional is available for your use in pdf format and may be read online or downloaded for printing and/or sharing.
