2023 Lenten Devotionals

Bethel is offering two Lenten Devotionals this year if you want to take either as a new discipline as we prepare ourselves for Holy Week and the Easter Season. The first is "Redeemed" put out by the Society of Saint Andrew, an organization devoted to feeding the hungry through gleaning. The second is "Picturing God," a collaborative devotional developed by Methodist pastors, Episcopal priests, and academics throughout Virginia and beyond.

This is the first entry in the "Picturing God" devotional. The full devotional is available above, but this is a beautiful meditation about grief and how God holds us through every bit of our lives. We wanted to feature it here as an example of the devotions you can find in that series.
