Daily Readings for Lent 2017

The following daily readings are from Isaiah, Genesis and Proverbs. They have been chosen especially for Lent to help us confront the stark reality of our own potential for good and for evil.  Read the passages prayerfully. Allow them to lead you into careful self-examination. Ask yourself daily; against what evil does the prophet Isaiah warn? What new beginnings are needed in my life which mirror those I read about in Genesis? What wisdom from Proverbs clarifies me?

May the scriptures below create in us true repentance, a hunger and thirst for God, and a desire that our whole lives might be infused with God. Grace and peace, Tonya and Jeffrey
