Monday Practice: Resources for Lent

Rather than post a particular prayer practice this week, I want to highlight some resources that you might find helpful as you think about the upcoming Lenten season.

Here are some available through this very blog:

This is my prayer journal from the Holy Spaces retreat.

This is my prayer journal from the Holy Spaces retreat.

  • Wilderness Choices: The Way of Jesus in a World of Worry; this is an actual, in-person, retreat at the Hollis Renewal Center in Bonner Springs Kansas, March 8-9.
  • Holy Spaces: A Creative Arts Lenten Retreat; this material is based on the lectionary readings for 2012 (Year B), but the general Lenten themes carry over from year to year. The PDF book contains worship liturgies, creative prayer experiences, creative writing exercises, and scripture reflections.
  • Fruit of the Spirit: A Creative Arts Retreat in Daily Life; this material contains 9 weeks worth of creative reflections based on the nine fruits of the Spirit listed in Galatians. The book is available with or without art supplies and also as a PDF.
  • Colored Pencil Prayers; this book describes five different types of creative prayer exercises and provides prompts and drawing space for each.
  • This blog; I will continue to post prayer practices, worship pieces, and scripture reflections throughout Lent. You can also select “Practices” on the Category list to the right–that will bring up previous posts that are specifically related to different spiritual practices.


And here are a few other Internet options to check out:
