Dear CME Members, 

As we celebrate this Lenten Season, the College of Bishops of the CME Church invites you to join us on a journey of Fasting, Praying, Meditation and Sharing.

During the next 40 days, we encourage CME’s across the Connection to set aside time for meditation and witnessing in addition to practicing the discipline of fasting.  It is our hope that this brief outline will provide support and undergirding for local congregations. If a congregation already has a 40 Day program in place, please continue with that program and know that diversity enhances our unity.

Below you will find a brief description of the three constructs of the 2017 Connectional 40 Day Fast as well as a list of the Daily Readings. You may download the 2017 Connectional Fast resources at the link above.

May God bless you during this Lenten Season.  


In the Lord's Service, 

Senior Bishop Lawrence Reddick  
Bishop Marvin F. Thomas, Sr., Chair
