Upside-Down, Inside-Out: Year B, Lent 2015

2014, 32 pp
Lent is a good time to offer oneself to God. When we do, interesting things happen. These can include having our expectations and understandings turned upside down and inside out. That’s what the Lent writing team found as they worked with this season’s texts. What will result from your family’s God moments this season?

The prayers and response activities in this booklet can help your family have your own God moments this Lent to Easter season. Use it whenever and however it fits into your routines and life stage realities. The prayers and themes from the bi-nationally produced congregational resource for Lent, Leader: Equipping the Missional Congregation – Winter 2014/15 (Faith & Life Resources) have been simplified, adapted, and added onto to fit into family life.

If your family has younger children, simplify, shorten, and paraphrase the prayers and pondering questions. To use this booklet for daily worship times, repeat the litany for each day of the week, and read the daily scripture recommendations. Or, choose one text and repeat it daily. The lectionary texts are divided into seven short readings.

Activity suggestions arise from the theme, the scripture selections, and the various ways people engage in learning and worshiping. The pondering questions are designed to allow God to speak to each household member in a personal way. Enjoy a short time of silence after each question and feel free to share or ponder these thoughts in your heart. The collection of recommended worship items, listed below, can help you make a holy space in your home and your hearts for God during the season of Lent.

Includes separate colouring pages!
