If Advent/Christmas is a revelation of God's presence with us, then Lent/Easter is a revelation of God's desire to use all of life for our wholeness and our healing - the revelation that he will pull life from death.
Deepen your observance and understanding of the Lenten season with this collection of contemplative readings. Beginning with Shrove Tuesday and Ash Wednesday, God for Us guides readers through the five weeks of Lent to Palm Sunday, Holy Week, and Easter with a series of short essays exploring the history and traditions of the penitent season. Though not a daily worship guide, each chapter includes a short prayer and recommended scripture readings for Christians seeking to move beyond the typical forty-day fast to a more meaningful exploration of faith.
