FROM THE EPISCOPAL CHURCH (TEC)
Life Transformed - The Way of Love in Lent
Includes video series, adult forum, quiet day curriculum, publicity materials, daily practice calendar. The journey through Lent into Easter is a journey with Jesus. We are baptized into his life, self-giving, and death, then we rise in hope to life transformed. This Lent, faith communities will be invited to walk with Jesus in his Way of Love and into the experience of transformed life.
FROM THE DIOCESE OF MISSOURI
LENT MADNESS A fun way to practice Lent is to participate in the Lent Madness fundraiser for Deaconess Anne House, a ministry of the Diocese of Missouri. Lent Madness is a saintly single-elimination tournament with the Golden Halo as the grand prize. "Purchase" a bracket for a suggested donation of $10 for one bracket or $30 for your whole family. The 1st Place Winner will have the soon-to-be coveted honor of having their name added to the DAH Golden Halo (read golden toilet seat…) hanging in the chapel at DAH! Make your donation to support DAH at www.diocesemo.org/give.
