Lenten Devotions

Often during Lent, Christians take up a spiritual practice to honor the 40-day period in between Ash Wednesday and Easter Sunday. One spiritual practice is engaging with a daily sacred reading called a “devotion.” Students, faculty, staff, Convocators and Regents have written devotions to share with our community on the theme of "Known and Loved.". To be known requires a fair share of transparency and to be loved means that we are worthy enough receive the love of another. The witness of Holy Scripture tells us that God, who created all things, knows every fiber of our being, even before we were born. This same God also goes to great lengths to love us, save us from our sin, and restore us to a new and whole life.

These devotions can be found: It is our hope that these devotions might be a tool for spiritual reflection.
