A confession: I feel unprepared for Lent this year. It crept up on me, and as I told a friend a couple of days ago, I feel like it’s suddenly breathing down my neck. Not exactly the image one ideally pairs with the season of repentance and quiet contemplation.
Maybe you’re feeling a bit of this too?
If that’s true, I have some good news for both of us.
As has been the case for the last three years or so, I have once again collaborated with my church to create a Lenten devotional this year. And as has been the case in the past, my church has graciously enabled me to make this devotional available to you as a downloadable e-booklet.
This may be the answer we both need to help quell this feeling of unrest that seems to be stretching its sticky tentacles into the corners of our lives. I invite you to join with me this Lenten season in reading, meditating and praying our way through these 47 devotions.
The e-booklet includes:
- A short Bible reading and an accompanying devotional for each day of the six weeks of Lent, beginning on Ash Wednesday and concluding on Easter Sunday.
- A prayer or action item for the day to help you live out God’s word in your everyday.
- Seven family-centered devotions/activities – one for each week of Lent.
- Seven weeks of small group discussion questions.
- Beautiful original photography by Nebraska photographer Curt Brinkmann.
