Journey to Lent, Journey to Learn

A Reflection on Public Education in God’s World Today

Rev. Joe Brown, chair of the Council’s Public Education Committee and a Presiding Elder in the AME Zion Church, is encourging congregations across North Carolina to use a Lenten Study Guide which has been created by members of the National Council of Churches Committee on Public Education and Literacy.

The Study Guide, Journey to Lent, Journey to Learn: A Reflection on Public Education in God’s World Today, may be found on-line at:

In the context of Bible study, this guide lifts up many of the concerns raised in a 2010 Pastoral Letter sent by the Governing Board of the National Council of Churches to the President and Congress:

Here in North Carolina, where the issue of re-segregation is critical is several parts of the state, A Reflection on Public Education may be especially timely this Lenten season.
