Ash Wednesday and the Beginning of Lent

seeking: honest questions for deeper faith
This Lent, we invite you to engage in the spiritual practice of seeking. We encourage you to stay curious, open, and nimble. We hope you will soften your assumptions and expand your perspectives. We pray that these questions will create a safe space to explore—to be drawn more deeply into the fullness of life, into the heart of God.

Seeking: Honest Questions for a Deeper Faith
Each week this devotional offers commentary, poetry, visual art, hymns, and reflection prompts. We encourage you to walk through these weekly readings at your own pace throughout the season, following the rhythm that works best for you. Digital version provided. Printed copies available.
