The Council of Bishops of The United Methodist Church will be offering a weekly devotion during the Lenten season. Each Wednesday during Lent and every day during Holy Week, a 15-minute recorded devotion, led by a bishop and leaders from their episcopal areas will be released.
The devotions are part of the larger Dismantling Racism Initiative launched by the Council in June 2020. The purpose of the Initiative is to cultivate sustained and coordinated effort to dismantle racism and to promote collective action for racial justice in the church and world.
