Resources for Celebrating Lent

February 11, 2013


I wanted to post a few links to some excellent resources for celebrating the season of Lent. The list below are some of my go-to sites for ideas, themes, and practices. If you are planning worship or creating space for a group to experience this part of the journey with Christ together, then I hope these resources can be helpful to you. Peace.

Lent: A Season of Returning, by Ruth Haley Barton. This reflection gives a wonderful overview to the meaning and purpose of the season of Lent. Her organization, Transforming Center, offers numerous great resources as well.

Nadia Bolz Weber from the House for All Sinners and Saints’ offers 40 Ideas for Keeping a Holy Lent.

Jan Richardson’s blog, The Painted Prayerbook, always contains meaningful writing and beautiful artwork.

    Wow. Honored to be on the list. And I love Nadia’s ideas. Think I’ll print those off for myself this year. Thanks.

    Glad to include you on the list, Joanna! I’ve enjoyed the many worship materials you’ve created. In fact yesterday in my congregation we participated in a liturgy with ashes, and used 2 prayers from your Ash Wednesday liturgy (Prayer of Release, Prayer of Confession). So meaningful. Blessings to you and your congregation during this Lent season.
