Lent Resources 2020 – The God Who Speaks in Power and Mercy

Our Lent resources are focused on the First Readings which illustrate both the power and the mercy of God. This year has been designated a Year of the Word with the theme of ‘The God Who Speaks’. Each Lent, we set time aside to ‘repent and believe the Good News’. The Bible is our key source of that News and the call to repent echoes down the ages as God has called his straying people back to him.

Our Lent Resources are focused on the First Readings, which illustrate both the power and the mercy of God. We will meet some of the key characters in the long story of salvation leading up to the life, death and resurrection of Jesus and reflect on how their stories can still have a meaning for our own.

As usual, you will find a Leader’s sheet to guide you through a meeting for each week in Lent and one in Eastertime, which you can follow as closely or as loosely as you wish. There are participants’ sheets that you are free to copy to use with a group, or as an individual, if there is not a group meeting near you.

The Daily Reflections have been put into booklet form; feel free to copy and distribute. There is a booklet for each week in Lent and one for the first part of Holy Week.

There are also Prayer Stations; simple ways to engage people with the Scriptures that you can use in church or school or in your own home.

So, lots of things for you to explore!

We appreciate feedback, positive or 'constructively critical', so do get in touch with any thoughts or suggestions as to how we can improve the resources in the future.
