The Challenge of the Silence of God

Many of us started 2021 filled with hope, only to realize there is still a long desert of waiting before us.

Many Christians use the season of Lent as an opportunity for reflection and self-sacrifice in order to replicate Christ’s journey of waiting in the desert for 40 days. The challenges of fear, doubt, grief, and despair in the face of the seeming silence of God are familiar to the narrative of the Scriptures.

This exclusive series of videos and devotions by Canadian guest authors explores how the Word of God helps us approach a time of waiting such as this. Subscribe to have devotions sent to your inbox biweekly from Ash Wednesday through Holy Week.
