Lent 2017

Lent, a period of 40 days of reflection between Ash Wednesday and Easter Sunday, offers Christians an opportunity to renew their commitment to being more Christ-like. The General Commission on Religion and Race (GCORR) presents a Lenten Biblical Reflection entitled Roll Down, Justice! Written by Faye Wilson and featuring the music and reflections of Mark A. Miller, Roll Down, Justice! will ask us What are we prepared to give in order to have a closer walk with God and what can we give in order to embrace anew the work of justice? We all learn in different ways and Roll Down, Justice! calls us to sing to ourselves and to each other the call that we each have to do to “seek justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God.” Carry the commitment to care – to bring about justice in God’s world – as a song in your heart. Roll Down, Justice!

Wednesday Evenings
