Lenten Devotional

Pastor Hardy suggests 40–Day Journey Through Lent. This book contains forty inspiring passages gleaned by Editor Donna Schaper from the works of Howard Thurman, a spiritual advisor to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. By reading one each day of Lent, skipping Sundays, we’ll be encouraged to live out our faith in action that is “guided by spirit and maintained in peace.”   Thurman was an influential American author, philosopher, theologian, educator and civil rights leader. Purchase the book from the Sunday Book Sale or online.
