Description

In this year’s BRF Lent book Sally Welch explores two questions: What is the Easter story really about, and how do we share it?

Through each week of Lent, a different aspect of the Easter story is examined: repenting, forgiving, hoping, trusting, sacrificing, loving and changing.

Within each week, the days are focused on what we need to do in order to share the story: listening, understanding, reflecting, living, telling, sharing and becoming. Each day offers a Bible passage, followed by a reflection and a prayer. Suggestions for group study and group study questions are also included.

‘Imbued with biblical insight, this book delves into the basic human
nature of our lives, the failings, the forgivings and the foibles of the
way we are and the way we behave. Into the glorious muddle of
our lives, we search for God and find God, revealed distinctively in
the Easter story. We find God on a journey through repentance and
restitution, forgiveness and faith, arriving at the Easter dawn with
a renewed sense of our place in the world and the way in which we
can and should relate to each other and to God. In Sally Welch we
have a delightful, experienced pastoral guide who looks back at
lockdowns and opens up new pastures of faith, hope and love as
we journey on.’
Gordon Giles, canon chancellor, Rochester Cathedral and author of
At Home in Lent

 

‘Sally has a wonderful gift of bringing the biblical text alive by
connecting its stories and images to contemporary examples we
are familiar with and perhaps experience ourselves. The result is
fresh insight into God’s great overarching story and an invitation
to participate in it ourselves.’
Elizabeth Hoare, director of spiritual formation and pastoral care,
Wycliffe Hall

 

‘In this both challenging and encouraging Lent book, Sally has
woven a beautiful golden cord, binding together scriptural truth and
wisdom, profound contemporary relevance and insightful personal
experience. Written with warmth, love and understanding, this is a
genuine treasure to accompany your Lenten journey and, indeed,
for any time or season.’
Margaret Silf, author of Lighted Windows
