What is your story – the story of who you are?
The stories we tell ourselves about who we are help us to understand our past and also shape our future.
That’s why it’s important to keep ourselves grounded in the greatest story of all – the story of God. After all that we’ve been going through during the past year, reminding ourselves that we are part of his divine narrative is more important than ever.
This is the theme of our new Lent devotional. It’s called A story to live by – and it’s exactly that: a reminder of who God is, who we are, and how we fit into this beautiful story.
You can sign up for your free devotional by clicking the button below. It’s also perfect to use with friends, family, as a church or in small groups, so why not forward this email to someone else who might be interested? Get your free devotional
The events of the past 12 months have been unprecedented and many of us are feeling a real thirst to connect afresh with the Bible and focus on the life of Jesus. Taking this into account, we wanted to do something a little different to mark the season of Lent this year.
So, we’ve put our heads together and developed a brand new, 40-day experience called The Lent Encounter. It’s completely free – all you have to do is sign up. You’ll receive an email each day featuring Bible verses, beautiful and inspiring images, video reflections and practical challenges. Sign up
Many of the themes we will explore throughout The Lent Encounter follow the narrative of Andrew Ollerton’s recently published book The Bible: A Story That Makes Sense of Life. You do not need to have read the book to enjoy the full experience of The Lent Encounter but once you have signed up, look out for an email enabling you to order the book at a discounted rate.
We hope you’ll sign up and be encouraged as you journey through Lent with us.
Journey to the Cross
A 40-Day Lenten Devotional
Lent is a time in the yearly Christian calendar when we mourn our sin and let go of worldly things that keep our hearts from experiencing God more fully. But how do we reevaluate and recalibrate the values of our hearts to match those of our suffering Saviour?
In this forty-day Lenten devotional, best-selling author Paul David Tripp invites us to set aside time from the busyness of our lives to focus on the suffering and sacrifice of Jesus. Each of the short readings encourages us to abide in the abundant joy found in Christ as we encounter the Saviour more fully and follow him more faithfully during this Lenten season.
