Duncan recommends: #Live Lent 2021

by | Feb 7, 2021 | Events


Here are details of the resources for Lent which Duncan recommended to us this morning.  Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, 17th February, and ends on Easter Sunday, 4th April.  You can watch the introductory video here or follow the link below.

There are six reflections for each week, written by Stephen Hance, the Church of England’s National Lead for Evangelism and Witness. Each reflection includes a short passage from the Bible, a brief exploration of the reading, and a prayer. Additionally, each week has a unifying theme and an action to be taken during the week.

The daily reflections are available through the booklet available to buy from Church House Publishing. The booklet is also available in a Large Print format. There’s a preview of this booklet here.

The reflections will also be available as a free app (launching in early February), emails, audio and through the Church of England’s social media accounts. The app version will include a daily Family Activity, offering a simple way to explore a story or a theme from the day’s reflection. 

The App should be available from your App Store now with a preview of what’s to come beginning 17th February. The audio reflections will be available on 0800 804 8044 daily from 17th February. There’s a form to submit to sign up for the daily emails at the bottom of this page.

Duncan adds:  ‘The daily reflections are linked to a book called Living God’s Story  by Hannah Steele, subtitled “Revealing the extraordinary love of God in ordinary ways.”  I am mid way through reading the book and have found it very encouraging. It’s well written. The blurb talks about “how we can convey the love of God to our neighbours in a post Christian world……..” – a challenge to us all.’
