“We are closer to God when we are asking questions than when we think have the answers.”

(Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel)


In this Lenten season, you’ll find something for every person who’s ever had a question about their faith.

And yes, it’s true – not only does everyone have questions about faith, God, the Bible, but our faith actually grows healthier and deeper when we engage those questions. 

That’s why we are doing exactly that during this Lenten season. Supported and encouraged by a set of scripture readings during worship that are filled to the brim with Big Faith Questions, we will offer space to enter our own questions about faith. Here are some ways you can join the wrestling:

Lenten Devotional

Each day from Ash Wednesday to Easter, you will encounter questions designed to help you learn, meditate, and pray. On Saturdays, the daily rhythm gives way to a prompt for the Question Jar, a multigenerational practice in which your whole household, no matter its size or makeup, can participate. 

This devotional will be available in printed format, digitally, or conveniently emailed to you daily. If you would like it emailed, email Jenna at stpauls@stpaulspittsford.org or click HERE.

Bible Study

We have been compiling people’s biggest questions about the Bible, the Christian life, and God, and will form a Bible study based on those questions, so we can grapple with them together. Bible study will be held after worship each week through Lent, beginning February 26. No need to be an expert to come – this is intentionally designed for people to bring their questions, not their answers! 

Sign up to bring some soup to share and settle in for what will surely be a rich conversation!
