Lenten Devotions

Every year, Outreach for Hope presents daily Lenten devotions, written by ELCA ministers, lay leaders, seminary interns and newly called pastors.

You can sign up to receive these daily words of support by email, using the link above. You will receive a daily devotion by email throughout Lent (excepting Sundays.)

If you prefer, you can download all 40 devotions as a set and read them at your own pace. See below under “Resources.”

Many congregations print and distribute the full set of devotions within their congregation. Ask your church office if they plan to do so! They can contact for more information.
