Rev. Jeff Hodge  (updated 03-01-23)   Lent Study via Zoom: Emily Dickinson & the Poetry of Lent.      For the 3rd year, we will offer a joint study for Pennellville UMC and BFUMC via zoom. The class is free, but registration is needed to get the Zoom link. We will meet every Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. between March 1 and April 5. It is not too late to join. Notify the office or Pastor Jeff and you will be sent a zoom link. Copies of the devotional are available in the office. Digital materials will be sent upon registration. Lent is a time of reflection and insight, a change of seasons - and Emily dickinson, one o fthe world's most beloved poets, was also an avid gardener and a careful observer of the natual world.   In this Lenten devotional, biblical texts and simple, accessible practices weave together with Dickinson’s poetic vision, creating a 40-day journey into the heart of the holiest week of the year.
