The Lenten Reader is now available!
This is the second year the Evangelical Covenant Church of Canada (ECCC) has produced this devotional for Lent. Each day has a passage from Scripture and a reflection on that passage from a member of the ECCC.
The Scripture passages follow the story of the Bible from God placing Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden to the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The passages were selected to portray the love of God for His people, their/our unwillingness to live in obedience, and the need for Jesus' saving crucifixion. There are highs and lows. There are times when the people of God got it right and when they missed the mark.
You are invited to participate with brothers and sisters across the ECCC who will read the Lenten Reader as part of their preparation for Holy Week and Easter. We pray that it will deepen your faith and encourage you in your walk with Jesus.
