On behalf of Claremont UMC's Commission on Religion and Race, Maisie Dawes invites us to join in Lenten devotions at GCORR website (click on the "lent" image). Maisie notes, "The guides which are being provided to assist/engage members/readers through their respective Lenten Reflections will be based on the collection of social justice hymns recently published by Mark Miller of Drew University School of Theology and each is accompanied by a video."
