Lenten Devotions

Daily devotions can help us deepen our understanding of how God is calling us.

Printed Devotions

We have ordered copies of the devotion "Awakening to God's Beauty" from PCUSA. Get yours at tea time beginning February 24 or request a copy by email  to info@pccsf.org

Material for our Lenten theme has been adapted from materials developed by Marcia McFee at the Worship Design Studio

Reconnecting with an Unhurried God 

The season of Lent has often been a time when we think about "giving something up". But what if we thought less about "giving up" and more about "making room?" What does it cost us to lead such busy lives? What would it be like to slow down and give our heavy burdens to God. God will give us rest. (Matthew 11:28)

The Right Tempo

God never promised that the yoke would literally be "easy". What if the yoke is "well fitting" and we discover a tempo that fits us and energizes us.

Matthew 11:28-30

Preparing a Table

God is present with us through still waters, green pastures, darkest valleys. Have we been too busy to be really present to each other?

Psalm 23

Tuning In

We all need to be like Martha at times, but we also need to be like Mary - sitting still and tuning in to Jesus. 

Luke 10:38-42

Living Light

How can we throw off the load of expectations and "shoulds" that clutter our lives and our serenity and our relationship with God?

Luke 12:29-34

A Time for Every Matter

Do our devices blur the lines between busy and rest? Is there a time for every matter - rest as well as work as well as prayer?

Ecclesiastes 3:1-13
