Readings and Reflections by Dr. Ron Elsdon:

On each weekday, throughout Lent 2021, Dr. Ron Elsdon will record a 3 minute Daily Reflection, which you will be able to access below by clicking on the appropriate link or as a daily post on our Facebook page. The text of each reflection along with the reading can be viewed in the weekly PDF file below.

Across the six weeks of Lent, and leading to Holy Week, Dr Ron Elsdon will consider the themes of Lament, Fear, Repentance, Thanksgiving, Perseverance and Hope. During Holy Week Ron reflects on some words from Henry Francis Lyte’s hymn ‘Praise my soul the king of heaven’. Ron completes his series of reflections during Easter week when he considers the theme of resurrection.

 

Please take a few short minutes each day to listen, reflect, and pray during this season of Lent and Easter.
