So are you getting ready for Lent 2016?
Yes, I know, it’s not even the end of summer and we have not even sniffed Advent, but can you ever really start too early preparing for Lent? Okay fine, you probably can start too early, but this year, why wait when you can pick up my new Lenten prayer book for 40% off?
Yes, Westminster John Knox Press and I found a writing project that we are both excited about, 40 Days, 40 Prayers, 40 Words: Lenten Reflections for Everyday Life and through September 30th you can pre-order for 40% off.
Here is the blurb from the book . . .
In 40 Days, 40 Prayers, 40 Words, Bruce Reyes-Chow encourages readers to pause in the bustle of their daily lives to reflect, engage, and share during the Lenten season. Forty devotions are each framed around a word inspired by the daily lectionary readings and include a short scriptural passage, inspirational prayer, and reflection. Readers who feel too busy for daily engagement with God will appreciate Reyes-Chow’s ability to speak to the blessings and burdens of everyday life in a concise, lively manner. Moreover, readers also have the ability to connect with others through interactive elements like QR codes that link to social media and provide access to additional reflections, graphics, and prayers. This unique resource expands the ways we can connect with God, and with each other, both during Lent and at any time along our journeys of faith. #40wordprayer.
I am excited about the possibilities for our engagement through these prayers, so I hope you can pick it up for you and/or your congregation.
