Lent – Penitence and Preparation

We are entering the season of Lent this Wednesday, March 6th. Although many Christian traditions no longer observe Lent, I’ve found preparing for the celebration of Easter deepens the experience. Combining my research in art with Lent I’ve been working to create a Visual Lent Devotional.

I’d like to invite you to join me on my journey, exploring the Art of Christ’s Passion. These devotionals will begin on Ash Wednesday, and continue through Holy Week. Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday a new devotional video focused on a piece of art (20 videos all together) will be used to speak to us in a fresh way the timeless truths of the Easter Season.

Artists frequently take the familiar, twist it slightly changing the perspective, and give us a fresh vision. Art focused on Christ life is no different. I think you will find these works contain profound insights and fresh inspiration, expanding your understanding of Christ ministry. I hope you will be encouraged and filled with anticipation to celebrate the Resurrection with a renewed spirit this coming Easter morning.

You can view the first Devotional in the series here.

The devotional can be purchased on the Courses page, however, I don’t want anyone who wishes to use the devotional to miss out due to a lack of funds. If that is your situation just send me an email and I will see you get the information.

Each of the devotionals is also available in a pdf format if you prefer to read or print it.

In order to add courses to my website we are making some major changes. I hope you’ll be patient as we complete the transition. If you are having any problems navigating, please let me know!
