Christians around the world set aside the six weeks before Easter to prepare for Christ’s death and resurrection. This season of surrender begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Silent Saturday – About forty days of remembering, fasting, and giving.
This Lent, we want to cultivate a rhythm of Bible-centered meditation, reflection and personal response. Our new book, He is Love: Daily Scripture & Prayer From Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday (and Beyond) provides a simple and practical way for us to do just that. Using carefully chosen passages that are foundational to our faith and propel us to live in ways that honor Christ’s sacrifice, author and Arise board member Sarah Bulkley has partnered with her artist mom and designer brother to give us over 40 days of Scripture and prayer. Each day leads readers through a countdown to Easter, with additional space for crafting our own responses to key passages.
A set of six FREE printable Scripture memorization cards by @sheletterstruthco correspond to the book and are available through this link. They’re the perfect size (4×6) to frame, post on a refrigerator, tuck into your Bible, or mail in a note to a friend. Commit to reading them, meditating on them, and memorizing them on your own, with your family, or alongside other women as you move through this season of Lent and the He Is Love resource.
May this season of repentance and beginning again yield sweet communion with Christ. Our sacrifice for His glory.
**Note for readers in the greater PDX/Arise area: Feel free to contact one of us if you want to save on shipping and do a porch pick-up. Suggested donation for local copies is $10, but let us know if this doesn’t fit your budget. As always, our goal is to get Scripture and resources into as many hands as possible. We should have hardcopies available locally by the last week of February. Just send us an email or PM via social media.
