Lent

Psalm Reflections for the Season 2020

Thank you very much to everyone who is participating the reading through the psalms, and reflecting on them, in Lent 2020. In the last week before Easter, Holy Week, we are invited to read through Jesus Christ’s betrayal to his burial, as recorded by John. We are encouraged to read a section each day, and to read the reflection which goes along with the Bible reading.

These reflections were written by St. Brice’s parishioners. Some are long; some are short. All of them encourage us to read the Bible carefully, and consider how its message can speak into our lives today. Different people used different Bible translations (NIV, ESV, The Message, etc.), and some people used commentaries and annotated Bibles to help them understand the passages. I have tried to avoid editing the material, except to make a few changes to punctuation and syntax. (I want people to read what laity reflect, not what Peter Armstrong reflects, about the passages.) Enjoy!

God bless. PA
