The Season of Lent
You agreed in a pre-pageant haze to take over this year’s Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper. Lent seemed so far away…
Now it’s around the corner. You know people will show up, hungry. You know you have volunteers. What you don’t know is how to turn on the church oven.
Breathe. You can do this. We can help. Here at Building Faith we have BTDT experts to offer wisdom for just such occasions. BTDT, of course, stands for “Been There, Done That.”
As the calendar draws near to Lent, many churches and individuals are looking for books and resources for the journey. Paraclete Press has new offerings for Lent, as well as trusted favorites. From books to CDs… children to adults… there is something for everyone.
“Almighty God, you have created us out of the dust of the earth.” Building Faith offers ideas and inspiration for Ash Wednesday and Shrove Tuesday.
Your invited to this free webinar on planning for Lent. Big picture thinking and practical ideas with Matthew Kozlowski, Krista Lovell, and Sue Van Oss.
In a family with small children it is often difficult to know how to create a space to journey through lent together in a developmentally appropriate way. Our family has tried different practices and readings through lent, but the one thing that has been constant in our Lenten practices is simply creating a collection of symbolic items in a central place in the home (i.e. on the family table or on a stand in a main living area).
