This Lent, experience an interactive devotional like no other, centered on the speeches of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, the thoughts of leaders of the Baltimore-Washington Conference and opportunities to live out a rich legacy of justice and hope. This Lenten Journey combines the writings of Dr. King with spiritual practices as a way to experience the presence of God. With growing racial struggles in our country, this devotional can be an amazing opportunity to hear more from God’s Word about God’s plan for all God’s people to be one again in Jesus.
