In college I had a professor and he was so wise and one of the most faithful humans I had ever met. He also was extremely honest and was not afraid to speak his mind. Dr. Hobbie felt very convicted that during the season of Lent we shouldn’t just give something up but we should take something on. He said that in order to feel a bit more viscerally how Christ might have felt during his ministry, it was important to take something on. Carrying the cross was not an act of being deprived, it was the act of taking on a burden voluntarily. This Lenten season we hope you will take on the practice of weekly devotions and inward reflection. What is it that God is trying to say to you this Lenten season? Join us as we journey to the cross together.
Each Wednesday a different Lenten devotional will be delivered to your inbox starting Ash Wednesday. These are pieces that have been written by different faculty and board members, alumni and devoted colleagues of Pittsburg Theological Seminary. Here is a little bit about the seminary as is listed on their website: Rooted in the Reformed tradition, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary is committed to the formation of women and men for theologically reflective ministry and to scholarship in service to the global Church of Jesus Christ.
I hope that you will find these devotionals to be meaningful and life-giving this Lenten season.
With God’s Grace,
