More Lenten resources

Kim Snodgrass One-minute read.   Resources

Hopefully, the first Lenten resource post offered some helpful choices for Lenten studies. This post offers households and congregations more meaningful ways to mark the days of Lent beginning with Ash Wednesday at Home, a free printable resource.

Lent in a Bag might also be particularly helpful this year, and the experiential resources described could be added to household Everything Holy sacred space.

We may be mostly home, but our options are wide open.

Pick up The Book of Common Prayer for Morning, Noonday, Evening Prayer, or Compline. Several churches throughout the diocese are sharing this experience online. Forward Day by Day daily meditation booklets are available in most churches, but also online along with the Daily Office and prayer supports. Living Compass also offers Lenten Reflections as a free download or sign up to receive each day’s reading via email.

These YouTube Lenten themed videos are not only good for personal reflection, but small group discussion. Watch Loving Your Neighbor, Other Faiths, NPR: Planet Money on Consumerism, or the Butterfly Circus. Ask yourself or others where is God in this video and situation? What can I learn?

And Lent is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about the Saints; those ordinary people who lived in the midst of difficulties, uncertainty, and suffering. Sound familiar? Despite their circumstances, they made extraordinary choices to put their faith into action. Learning more about their lives can teach us to do the same. Meet the Saints through Lent Madness 2021.

We may be mostly home, but our options are wide open.
