Journey to Transformation: 2020 Lenten Study
By Bishop Sharma D. Lewis
Sharing her individual journey, Bishop Sharma Lewis (Virginia Conference) invites readers to observe Lent by introspection, repentance, forgiveness, renewal, prayer, fasting, and Biblical Study.
Journey to Transformation is divided into four sections: Lenten Devotional, Prayer, Reflection, and My Action. Since Lent is a time for self-examination and renewal, Bishop Lewis offers a “My Action” section each day to allow readers to continue to put into practice what they have read and reflected upon, and as an opportunity to transform someone’s life.
Since Sundays are not counted during the Lenten Season, this study will allow individuals and groups to further engage in introspection. On Sundays, “My Personal Reflections Notes” will ask you to reflect and journal on the past week’s study with the following questions: (a) What day stood out during this Lenten journey? (b) What did you learn about yourself and your relationship with Jesus Christ? and (c) under the heading of My Action - What day brought you great joy or difficulty? Why?
Finally, readers are invited to journal their own thoughts in spaces provided.
