Julie Landrigan served as Camp Fowler’s day camp coordinator and recreation staff.
When I studied abroad in Paris, there were many times that I felt alone and was unsure of the way. But God introduced me to a lovely church that became my home base every Sunday, and helped to steady me. Now, as I have moved on to graduate school in yet another new location, I have again been graciously accepted, welcomed, and loved by a congregation that assists me in staying on the right path and following God’s way.
As we continue on our journey with Jesus toward the cross, we reflect on the road he traveled. The prayer in this passage, written many years before Jesus become flesh and dwelt among us, calls on God to deliver and save. When we feel afraid we, like Jesus and the psalmist, can call on God to deliver us and to continue to be our rock and our fortress.
Prayer: Dear God, please continue being my rock and my fortress. Deliver me out of the hand of the wicked, even when that wickedness may come from inside. For you, O Lord, are my hope, and my praise shall be continually of you. Amen.
The 2015 Lenten reflections were submitted by staff, volunteers, board members, campers, and friends who have spent time at Camp Fowler in New York.
For this year’s Lent devotions, the days follow the Common Lectionary texts. Each author was invited to: 1.Read the passage.
2.Read a couple passages before and after the assigned day.
3.Do something else for the day, keeping the passage in mind.
4.Find a word/phrase/concept that connects with your own experience. Reflect on that.
You are encouraged to do the same.
