Episcopal Relief & Development offers resources for Lent 2017

Episcopal Relief & Development offers resources for Lent 2017

MAR 5 is Episcopal Relief & Development Sunday. If MAR 5 doesn’t fit your plans for this coming Lent, you are encouraged to designate another time in Lent 2017 to remember ERD.

To help your congregation prepare for this special Sunday and for the Lenten journey, we encourage you to order the 2017 Lenten Meditations guide. Available in English and Spanish, this year’s devotional focuses on creating economic opportunities and strengthening communities, with a particular focus on empowering women. The daily readings are co-authored by a group of leaders from across the Anglican Communion, who bring a range of perspectives as they reflect on Scripture and other sources of spiritual wisdom.

You can find resources to assist in planning an Episcopal Relief & Development Sunday here.

The Lenten Meditation Guide is avalable for free in both English and Spanish bundled in packets of 25 from the Episcopal Media Center. The Guide can also downloaded in a pdf version in Spanish & English.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
