Lent 2024: Lent 2024 by Bro. James F. Robinson


“I love the Lord, for he heard my voice, he heard my cry for mercy.” 

Psalm 116:1


February 21, 2024

Lent 2024

As we can observe the Advent season in our rear-view mirror, we look forward to the season of Lent and  Resurrection Sunday with much anticipation.  I find my two favorite hymns, “When Peace, Like a River” and “How Great Thou Art,” bring an abundance of joy to my soul:

  • My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought, my sin not in part, but the whole, is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more, praise the Lord, praise the Lord, oh my soul.  It is well...

And when I think,  his Son not sparing, Sent Him to die,  I scarce can take it in, that on that cross, my burden gladly bearing , He bled and died,  to take away my sins. Then sings my soul…

Prayer: God, our Father, hear my voice. 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.
