Holy Week

Daily Rhythm

Devotional Diary  10-16 April 2017

Readings for this week with thanks to www.umcdiscipleship.org 

16 April 2017 is Easter Sunday

 

This week is Holy Week.  It is holy in that we set it aside to specifically and intensively focus on the events of the week in Christ’s journey which culminated in death and resurrection.  I have given you the set readings for each day.  If you do not find time to reflect on all the reading focus on the Gospel readings.  This week all you are asked to do is read the story.  But read it slowly and be open to God’s Spirit.  This is God’s work of salvation for you and your world.
