Ash Wednesday and Beyond: Meditations for Lent and Holy Week

These Lenten meditations are arranged so that from Monday through Friday, we will reflect on how we have fallen into sin so that we may confess our personal and common failures to live fully into our Baptismal calling. Saturdays will offer an opportunity to reflect upon the major themes of the week. Sundays will offer an opportunity to reflect upon the themes from the preceding week from the opposite viewpoint: how have we lived into our baptism so that we can offer God our corporate life, both what we give thanks for and what we confess?

The meditations for Saturday and Sunday are designed to be used in community, such as Adult Forum discussions. (Be sure to have prayer books and bibles available.)

Most weekday reflections will contain four parts: an opening sentence appropriate to the season, a reflection upon a portion of the Ash Wednesday Litany of Penitence, a question or two for personal reflection, and a closing prayer drawn from the BCP. Using these meditations will give you an opportunity to explore the riches of the Book of Common Prayer.
