Late to Lent?

Late To Lent?

If you haven’t yet had a chance to check out my new e-book, PilgrimYear: Lent (which is an 18 chapter, multi-media reflection on the meaning-rich season of Lent) know that there’s still plenty of Lent left to attend to.

But first, here are a couple of reader responses we’ve had so far:

 “…a beautiful discourse on what it’s all about…”

“Brilliant – such an amazing way to contemplate! Reading profound truth, meditating on art and poetry, quietly listening to inspired music… it’s just wonderful.”

“This is so different, so unique, so Steve Bell…”

Here are a few excerpts from the book:

Patrick memeFrom Chapter 9: The Feast of St. Patrick (March 17)
“It’s wonderfully poetic that Patrick first went to Ireland involuntarily as a slave-shepherd, then later returned voluntarily as a servant-shepherd…”

From Chapter 10: The Feast of St. Joseph (March 19)
“There’s a powerful grace at work here, quietly embedded in the story of this man, Joseph, who forfeited a life and dignity of his choosing to embrace a momentous disruption, and welcome as his own, with the right of co-heritage, the child of another love…”

From Chapter 11:  Third Sunday in Lent (March 23 – reflects on the story of Jesus’ encounter with the woman at the well)
“Perhaps the woman’s marginalization was not merely a result of wantonness. Could she have been the casualty of a wider social disease, one that victimizes and expels rather than repents and re-members? Jesus sees her pain. He feels her alienation. He absorbs her cynicism and weariness and says, in effect, ‘I re-member you. And I will not disappoint, for I am the well (life) that will never run dry….'”

  1. What a great resource. I can see this could be a great accompaniment to my (Mennonite!) liturgical service (yes, there really is such a thing!). I hope future versions are available for iPhone and android devices.

    Reply from Faye Hall: Snippet is indeed available from your iPhone or android. The beauty of it is if you have purchased Steve’s book from a Mac device, you can also “sign in” from any PC, and read the book from any computer (or any device that has internet). 🙂

  2. I am new to the contemplation of lent and the liturgy surrounding it. I have been a Christian for a long time, and can say that these collective reflections have allowed me breathing space in this crazy lead up to Easter. I am anticipating Easter differently this year and am thankful for this resource. I’m also very grateful for the collaborative approach that brought insights from different minds and giftings. Bless all of you for making this available.
