free 6-week Lenten Devotional.

GCORR invites you to use this devotional, “Transform Us: Journeying with Jesus Towards a New Church” for personal or congregational use. This devotional was inspired by themes from our Racial Justice Prayer and Action Challenge: lament, repentance, hope, liberation, healing, and reconciliation.


Lent represents the 40 days Jesus spent fasting in the wilderness.
It is a time for us to reflect, fast, and give penance in preparation
for the resurrection of Christ on Easter Sunday. io
