Welcome to the Lenten Devotional for 2014

Welcome to the Lenten Devotional for 2014 Dear Friends,

We at St. Matthew’s are excited to once again bring you our Lenten Devotional series.   We hope that reading them will help you grow in your walk with God, give you an even greater appreciation for the love of our Lord Jesus Christ, and provide an opportunity for you to see how active that love continues to be in the lives of the people around you.

At St. Matthew’s, it is our desire that all people would come to have a living relationship with Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.  However, we realize that no two people ever get there in quite the same way.  It has always been important to us to honor that and to welcome people as part of our family, wherever they are in their faith journey.

You will notice, therefore, a diversity of perspectives in the readings that follow.  Though I might not agree with all these perspectives, I think
that diversity is a beautiful thing.   As a community committed to
each other in love, it is a chance to think more deeply, to pray more thoughtfully, and to talk more freely and openly about what we believe and why.   It is, in short, an opportunity to know and share God’s love.

Warmly in our Lord,
