31 May A Lenten Journey: A Contemplative Devotional On the Passion and Resurrection of Christ
The cross of Christ draws us. A Spirit-led desire draws us to know and identify with Christ and His sufferings more fully. We desire to draw close to the greatest demonstration of the Father’s love for us in Jesus’ sacrifice, so close that His love draws us in and changes us forever. Springing from the desire for a deeper appreciation and participation with Christ, this Lenten Journey consists of nine weeks of devotional meditations and questions for reflection. The first seven weeks follow Christ’s journey through His passion. Two additional weeks after Easter explore the reality of Jesus’ resurrection life. At whatever point the reader of this devotional is on his or her own Lenten Journey, each day’s meditation and questions are designed to help you experience and participate in Christ’s self-giving life. The flexible design of the Lenten Journey means that it can be experienced fresh and differently each year.
