Here’s a beautiful hymn to help direct us at the beginning of Lent:
Fun fact: This year Ash Wednesday comes on Valentine’s Day, while Easter is on April Fool’s Day. Make of that what you will, I suppose. The last time this happened was in 1945.
My latest book, Speak to the Bones: How to Be a Prophetic People in a Time of Exile, is available from Amazon in both print and e-book formats: 161-page Book ; Kindle e-book. To celebrate the first anniversary of its publication, I have reduced the price for the rest of February: $6.99 for the print edition and $1.99 for the Kindle e-book. The ancient Hebrew prophets can serve as guides for modern-day prophetic communities to engage in actions for peace and social justice. Each of the 10 chapters includes questions for reflection and discussion, making this great for class use. My previous book What Was Paul Thinking? is also available on Amazon in both print and Kindle e-book editions.
