God is often at work through the ordinary: ordinary people, ordinary objects, ordinary grace. Through the ordinary, God communicates epiphanies, salvation, revelation, and reconciliation. It is through the mundane that we hear God's quiet voice.
In this devotion for the season of Lent, Jill J. Duffield draws readers' attention to ten ordinary objects that Jesus would have encountered on his way to Jerusalem: dust, bread, the cross, coins, shoes, oil, coats, towels, thorns, and stones. In each object, readers will find meaning in the biblical account of Jesus' final days. Each week, readers encounter a new object to consider through Scripture, prayer, and reflection. From Ash Wednesday to Easter, Lent in Plain Sight reminds Christians to open ourselves to the kingdom of God.
If you knew you were dying soon, would you see the people around you differently? Jesus knew in his last week before the resurrection that the end of his human life neared. He knew exactly how events would unfold. He knew what the voices of the people and places around him would say. 40 Voices - A Lenten Devotional captures the words and settings surrounding Jesus that final week, so we hear them with new insights. Their stories and experiences hold wisdom for us today and show us the transformational power of the cross. Jesus' presence in their story predicts his proximity within our story. Lent offers us a time to deepen our relationship with Jesus and to hear God in new ways. 40 Voices - a Lenten Devotional will give you a fresh look to the sounds from Christ's journey to the cross and will inspire and enrich our journey through Lent. Each reading opens with scripture and a thought-provoking reflection and closes with a suggested symbol to observe, a question to ponder, and a prayer to guide your time with God. Listen to the voices on the way to Calvary and draw closer to Christ.
With few exceptions, the Oberammergau Passion Play has been presented by the inhabitants of the village of Oberammergau, Bavaria, Germany every 10 years since 1634. The play is a staging of Jesus' Passion story, covering the final period of his life from his visit to Jerusalem to the journey to the cross..
In his new book and study, The Passion Play: Living the Story of Christ's Last Days, author and pastor Rob Fuquay follows the biblical story of the Passion and how it has been experienced through the centuries against the backdrop of this amazing play.
Perfect for Lent, this book and study takes you on a journey to the origins of the Passion Play and helps you understand how the play has been used both as a ritual of praise and later as a weapon through its anti-Semitic past. The book and study help readers and small groups feel a sense of connection to the play while recognizing their own place in the story of Jesus.
The six-session DVD features Rob Fuquay filmed on location in Oberammergau, Germany guiding participants through the study. The video sessions are approximately 6-8 minutes in length and, when combined with the six book chapters, make an ideal six-week group study. All videos sessions are closed captioned.
Victor Hugo's Les Misérables is a truly epic story. Whether you've tackled the 1,400-page 19thcentury novel, witnessed the Broadway musical (and memorized its soundtrack), or seen the several screen adaptations of it, you already know the power of its story.
In the six-week Lenten study The Grace of Les Misérables, author and pastor Matt Rawle dives into six ideals found in the story--grace, justice, poverty, revolution, love, and hope--each represented by a character in Hugo's story. As these imperfect and relatable characters interact, we can see how these ideals work together (perhaps even in spite of each other) out in the world.
In keeping with his previous works, Matt Rawle brings us to the intersection of Church and Pop Culture by drawing parallels between the iconic story and musical and our Christian calling, inspiring us to both understand our faith and live it out in the world.
The six-session DVD features Matt Rawle guiding participants through the study. The video sessions are approximately 8-10 minutes in length and, when combined with the six book chapters, make an ideal six-week group study. All videos sessions are closed captioned..
