new way this year?

Want to experience Lent in a

Would you like to walk through Lent in a way that helps you take in more than you give up…

more awareness, more connectedness, and more compassion for yourself

and for this aching little planet we all share? 

Join The Plural Guild & The Many for a daily e-course created for Lent, especially for those of us who have more questions than answers about God and life and faith, but who desperately want to be part of making the world better and more life-giving for everyone.

Written by an amazing and diverse group of twelve different writers, among them poets and preachers and artists and authors, all curated and edited by The Many's lyricist and co-director of the Plural Guild, Lenora Rand.  Find out more about all the writers below.

How It Works

Each day during the 6 weeks of Lent you'll be sent a selection of the suggested scriptures for the day from the Revised Common Lectionary, as well as a brief reflection on it from one of our writers and a simple, inspirational prompt to help guide you in your own reflection and writing.

After you register for the course, you'll also receive an invitation to a private Facebook group where you can share what you've written based on the prompts, read what others have written, and engage with others in the course.
