The Word Forming Us Together:

Lenten Reflections from CBF of Arkansas

We invite you to join us on a devotional journey through this Lenten season. On the following pages you will find devotional reflections from brothers and sisters connected to our Arkansas fellowship. The diverse authors of these reflections will challenge you to consider how the Word is forming us together this Lenten season. We hope you will join us in forming together through prayer, reflection, and response to Christ’s sacrifice and resurrection.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through him, and without him not one thing came into being. What has come into being in him was life, and the life was the light of all people.
(John 1:1-4)

Please take some time each Wednesday and Sunday during the season of Lent to read the passages, consider the reflections and questions, and use the guide in your times of prayer. We are excited to see how the Spirit will lead our CBF of Arkansas community through this devotional guide. Feel free to share this collection with friends and family; we encourage you to forward the PDF file to friends and family, make copies to share with those in your church, or follow the devotional online (website: www.cbfar.org/lenten-devotional or Facebook: www.facebook.com/cbfofarkansas)

You have an incredible opportunity to journey through this Lenten season together with other CBF Arkansans. Please share with us how God has spoken to you as we consider the Word of God forming us together this Lenten season.

                                           Forming together with you,

                                           Megan J. Pike, CBFAR Associate Coordinator
