Resources for Lent 2017

Lent is a time to connect to our Holy Land. 

During the holy season of Lent, our minds and prayers naturally turn to the Holy Land, the place of Christ’s ministry, suffering, death and resurrection. Christians living in the Holy Land today are a small minority in a volatile place. 

Be inspired by reflections on pilgrimage to the Holy Land and on peacebuilding.  Learn about and pray for the Holy Land, with these resources provided by the Holy Landers Ministry Network of ECCT with Jerusalem Peacebuilders and the American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem.

A Word From Presiding Bishop Michael Curry On The Good Friday Offering

 "The Jesus Movement is manifested through opportunities like the Good Friday Offering to stand in solidarity with our sisters and brothers throughout the Province of Jerusalem and the Middle East. I ask you to join me in the journey of faith as part of the Jesus Movement in supporting the Good Friday Offering again this year."
