A significant resource for Lent is the daily devotional guide by The Rev. Scott Stoner of Living Compass. Compass has a new Advent and Lenten Devotional every year in addition to other devotional studies for individuals and groups throughout the year, all focused on wellness in Mind, Body, Soul and Spirit in order to love God with all that we are. We at Emmanuel have been using these guides for several years now and find them to be very accessible – simple, yet inspirational.
For Lent, there is Living Well Through Lent A unique theme every year helps us to “practice” a spiritual discipline or character trait so that we may “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind.” The entire body of Living Compass studies are based on this commandment found in both the old and new testaments. —Luke 10:27, and Deuteronomy 6:5.
There are a number of ways you can engage with this material. You can download a copy of the 6 week daily devotional. This is FREE even though you go through the “shopping cart.” You might also like to get the daily reflection in your email box, available by signing up on this page. Join the Facebook Group – and learn from others or share your own thoughts. And, new this year, listen to the podcast here, also available on Apple Podcasts. Some printed copies of the study in booklet form were available in the back of the sanctuary, with a few more coming soon. Let us know if you missed this and would like to get one next year so we can order more.
So much to think about! Feel free to email us with questions!
