Monday Night Lenten Devotional


As Lent draws nearer, so does the milestone marking a full year of quarantine - a year that has been filled with challenges and pain, and in which we have all endured major changes in how we go about our daily lives.


Lent is a time to contemplate, to return to God, and to consider with seriousness what really matters in our lives of faith.


This year, more than ever, Lent will be a difficult season, but also one that hopefully presents opportunities for reflection, personal growth, and an outpouring of community support.


Beginning on February 22nd, student pastor Heidi Butler will be leading a devotional class on Monday nights throughout Lent focusing on spirituality and closeness to God through prayer, discussion, and exploration of art and written word using "Again & Again: A Lenten Refrain," from the company "A Sanctified Art." 


Gathering time will begin at 7:30pm, with the program beginning by 7:50pm and finishing by 9:00pm. Please contact Heidi (heidi.butler@yale.edu) for more information! --
