  • know that God is present;
  • read the gospel;
  • notice what you think and feel;

    PRAYING LENT RENEWING OUR LIVES

    PRAYING LENT RENEWING OUR LIVES
    $5.95
    An introduction to Lenten prayer as a path to spiritual renewal. Lent can be wonderful time of spiritual renewal, however for many, Lent and Lenten prayer is often thought of as an "ordeal." What can often be overlooked amid Lenten observances, such as fasting, abstinence, or the common tradition of giving something up, is the opportunity Lent presents, through Lenten prayer and preparation, to deepen our commitment to a way of life rooted in our baptism. Praying Lent: Renewing Our Lives on the Lenten Journey reminds the reader that if we focus too much on what we give up we may miss the message of what God wants to give us during this grace-filled time. Created in partnership with Creighton University's popular Online Ministries, Praying Lent provides readers with a rich, full, and transformative Lenten prayer experience, one in which hearts, minds, and lives are truly renewed as Lent takes on a far deeper and more meaningful purpose.

    A Way Other Than Our Own

    product image
    $9.99

    Lent recalls times of wilderness and wandering, from newly freed Hebrew slaves in exile to Jesus temptation in the desert. God has always called people out of their safe, walled cities into uncomfortable places, revealing paths they would never have chosen. Despite our culture of self-indulgence, we too are called to walk an alternative path one of humility, justice, and peace. Walter Brueggemann s thought-provoking reflections for the season of Lent invite us to consider the challenging, beautiful life that comes with walking the way of grace.

    From the Grave A 40 Day Lent Devotional

    product image
    $11.99

    40-day Lent devotional from a beloved spiritual writer

    As for the field, so for the soul: "The neglected heart will soon be overrun with worldly thoughts." Careful cultivation yields a harvest, and the heart requires great attention. .

    From the Grave, a 40-day Lent devotional, reflects on this critical spiritual dynamic. It features A. W. Tozer's best insights on faith, repentance, suffering, and redemption. Gleaned from transcribed sermons, editorials, and published books, each moving reflection has been carefully selected for the season of Lent. It addresses themes like:

  • Christ's passion, death, and resurrection
  • Mortification of the flesh
  • Self-denial and cross-bearing
  • New life in Christ
  • Christian obedience and resurrection hope
  • Each day features a brief portion of Scripture for meditation followed by a reflection from Tozer. Together the entries take you on a journey from the garden to the grave to light of day--the "pain-wracked path" to life.

    Embracing the Uncertain A Lenten Study for Unsteady Times

    product image
    $12.99

    Just turning on the news lets us know we are living in uncertain times. Economic instabilities, eruptions of violence, and natural catastrophes can alter the lives and landscapes of entire communities. Our individual lives are often just as unsteady: relationships can break, plans can falter, and confidence can fail.

    Uncertainty can definitely be uncomfortable. Many of us prefer stability and a predictable future to an unknown fate. We are wired to want to control our destiny.

    The reality is that in our fast-changing, unpredictable world there are few guarantees in life. It's those who are willing to embrace uncertainty and make the risky decision to follow Jesus despite the many "unknowns" who will reap the greatest rewards.

    Embracing the Uncertain invites readers this Lent to engage and wrestle with life's uncertainties, not ignore them. The first six chapters focus on six post-Transfiguration, pre-Passion stories in the Gospels. Each of these stories are signposts in the gospel narrative, pointing down at a world filled with uncertainty, but pointing us forward to a cross that can show us how to follow Jesus with courage, hope, and obedience. Includes discussion questions that can be used in small-group Bible study session or for personal growth.

    The Promise of Lent Devotional

    product image
    $12.99
    Lent is a time of remembering Christ's sacrifice--and yet it is not meant to be depressing; it is meant to be reorienting. The 40-day holy season is one of transition when we turn our eyes away from fading disappointments and move ever closer to the radiance of Easter hope.

    This is the purpose of The Promise of Lent Devotional: to stir up the hope that God has given us in the midst of a fallen world. Each day you'll read of death and new life, temptation and the power to overcome it, the life and ministry of Jesus, and the transformative power of God. Because when we gaze at God's true nature--his sacrificial love and his glorious resurrection--everything changes. The past fades, the tomb's stone rolls away, and our hearts awaken to faith once again. Discover that to be true this year, through The Promise of Lent Devotional.

    Make Room A Child's Guide to Lent And Easter

    Make Room A Child's Guide to Lent And Easter
    $15.99
    While the Advent season is filled with fun and expectations, Lent can be hard for children. It s travels through frightening places, loaded with themes of self-denial and death. How can children approach this season in a way that is meaningful and not frightening? "Make Room" presents Lent as a special time for creating a welcoming space for God. Other books offer excellent ideas for going through the Lenten season with children, but "Make Room" uniquely connects its projects to the story of Jesus. Simple and practical activities such as baking bread, having a neighbor over for dinner, uncluttering your room, and watching less TV become acts of justice and kindness, part of a life of following and imitating Christ, and a way to make room for God in our lives and in the world around us.
    Other books tell the Passion narrative for young readers; this unique book integrates themes of hospitality and self-giving that echo Jesus ministry, Jesus entire life. "Make Room" invites children to wonder about the story, to encounter Lent with all their senses, and to experience activities in Lent as part of a life of discipleship."
