Good afternoon, friends!
It’s three days after Christmas and rain is pouring outside our windows at the She Reads Truth office. The only thing that tells us it’s still winter is our gold Christmas tree we can’t bear to take down yet! It’s unseasonably warm, but somehow that makes it feel like an appropriate time to talk about the upcoming Lent reading plan.
As you probably know by now, She Reads Truth exists to be “Women in the Word of God every day,” and so we have been working hard the past several weeks to plan a meaningful and rich Scripture reading plan for the upcoming Lent season.
Here is how those 47 days (6+ weeks) will be broken down:
1. A brief Introduction to the traditions of Ash Wednesday and Lent on the Church calendar
2. An examination of biblical Repentance, Fasting, and Prayer
3. A walk through the book of Jonah, to deeper understand God’s sovereignty and salvation
4. A look at The Person of Christ, as demonstrated by Jesus’ “I AM” statements in the Gospel of John
5. A real-time walk through The Work of Christ during Holy Week, from His triumphal entry into Jerusalem to His once-for-all victory over the grave
The Lent 2016 reading plan begins Ash Wednesday, February 10, and continues through Easter Sunday, March 27. We invite you to join us for free online or via email subscription, or for a very small fee on the She Reads Truth app.
We’ve also created a crazy-beautiful Lent Study Book in collaboration with Kelly Ventura Designs. (You guys. We LOVE making these books for you! And we LOVE the challenge of making each one more beautiful and more useful than the last!)
This book intentionally includes the Lent Scripture reading plan only—with just one guiding essay for each section. Because God’s Word is living and active, we believe the Holy Spirit is ultimately all we need to read and respond to Scripture, and we keep our words separate to prevent distraction. Written responses to each day’s reading are always found exclusively on SheReadsTruth.com and the She Reads Truth app, and we warmly invite you to join us for that further commentary and conversation!
As one of our super-special seasonal study books, the 2016 Lent Book also includes extra elements such as sheet music, recipes, poetry, and beautiful, helpful infographics.
Find the Lent 2016 book for sale here, as well as more details and photos to get you excited! And if you know a “He” who might want to follow along at HeReadsTruth.com (same daily scriptures, just different responses), consider ordering the He/She book bundle to save a little bit of cash!
And, a little preorder incentive: All orders of the She Reads Truth Lent book (yes, that includes He/She bundles) will receive a hardcopy of the She Reads Truth Hymns EP for free! (If you order 6 books, you get 6 cds. Easy!)
We are so looking forward to beginning the Genesis study with you January 1, and we are already praying God will meet you in the February 10th Lent study as well.
Grace and Peace,
