Lent is a time of prayer, service, and self-examination. During this time, many of us choose to live simpler lives, remembering those who do not have the food, money, or resources to simply live. Here are some resources to help your congregation remember those who are hungry and living in poverty this Lenten season. MORE
FREE LENTEN DEVOTIONS PROGRAM
The Society of St. Andrew invites your congregation to participate in our 2013 Lenten devotion and giving program, “Living Proof”. In keeping with the traditions of Lent, the Society of St. Andrew invites your congregation to participate in a program of spiritual reflection, prayer, and giving. SoSA’s Lenten devotion program challenges the reader to take seriously the scriptural injunctions to care for the poor, while also providing an opportunity to feed our hungry neighbors.
Each day during Lent, our gifted and talented writers, through scripture and prayer, share where they have seen Jesus at work in the world. As you make the journey to the cross this year, use these devotions and prayers to reflect on your own “Living Proof” of Jesus Christ.” The Society of St. Andrew salvages fresh produce that cannot be sold and delivers it to agencies that feed hungry people in the United States.
TO ORDER: Learn more at http://www.endhunger.org/lent.htm. For questions, or to order SoSA’s free Lenten devotion materials and Good Friday Fast, you can also contact The Rev. Jennifer Vestal Moore at firstname.lastname@example.org or 800-333-4597.
LENTEN DEVOTIONS FOR GOD’S STEWARDSFrom Parish Publishing
It is most fitting that we speak of stewardship during this period of contemplation, penitence and alms-giving. It is a time of giving and doing charitable work! Our booklet, Lenten Devotions for God’s Stewards will inspire a strengthened sense of faith and stewardship. Give the gift that gives back!
We have put together the perfect package for your faith community: a Lenten devotions booklet, matching offertory envelope, an editable letter from the pastor, as well as a bulletin insert.
