Discipline of Holy Week

I am thankful for Randall and Sandra Curtis and their devotions for Journey to the Cross this week and last. They agreed to be Episcopal writers for d365 in Lent this year. Along with The Rt. Rev. Brian Prior they represent our denomination in this season for our ecumenical resource for young people. Ken Medema also offers us appropriately meditative and provocative music. I am proud of this resource and hope that others of you with a gift for devotional writing will let me know that you feel called to share through this resource, too.

Randall is on the Bishop's staff in Arkansas working with Youth and Young Adults. He is also the current Province VII Youth Ministry Coordinator. The following biography appears on the site introducing us to this week's writer Sandra, Randall's wife:
Sandra Curtis loves to read. She likes to curl up in bed reading stories with her daughter, Olivia. She loves recommending good books to the students at Episcopal Collegiate School, where she works as the librarian. She thinks sometimes books are like vegetables and occasionally will force her husband Randall to read things that are good for him, like parenting books and poetry. Her pugs, Coco and Cheerio, have the pleasure of listening in on book discussions at the dinner table. She believes to love a good book is to share it.
On another note, I am attempting to share one of my Episcopal Lenten disciplines this week on the blog and will post one of the Collects for Holy Week from A New Zealand Prayer Book each day. I love praying through the week with these strategic and thoughtful offerings. You can find them in the upper right corner of the blog.
Blessings in Holy Week,
