Lent 2024: Forgive and Love by Sis. Barbara Farrow Jones


“Forgive and you will be forgiven.”

Luke 6:37


Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us.”

Luke 11:4


“But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.”

Luke 6:35

Forgive and Love

I rarely watch the news lately because I find it very disturbing. It jars my sanity because I believe that there are strong forces trying to force the world to believe what is taking place is necessary. Nothing will change until we understand forgiveness and love.

During the Lenten season we fast, meditate and pray to thank God for forgiving our sins by sacrificing his one and only son. We know He did this because He loves us. We should thank and praise him and extend the same love and forgiveness to others that he has extended to us.

                                 Sister Barbara Farrow Jones



Prayer: Our Father, Thank you for every morning that we are allowed to awaken to praise and thank you for another day. Thank you for showing us what love, forgiveness, and grace look like. Thank you for Jesus. Amen!


Lent 2024

We invite you to join us in reflection, meditation and prayer for a season of renewal, repentance and rejoicing from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday.

Each day is a reflection representing the thoughts and aspirations of the members and friends of Metropolitan African Methodist Episcopal Church expressing what the season of Lent means to them.  Their wide range of perspectives describe how this time of renewal, repentance and rejoicing has been and will be used to focus on Jesus’ life, crucifixion and resurrection.

Read along with us each day or download the book to read and write along with us offline.
