Resources for Lent – 2018

Here are some updated links and info on my favorite Lenten resources. Enjoy!

– this is a compilation that I curated with Brian Murphy a few years back walking through the Stations of the Cross with Shape note texts – almost all of the texts here are “retuned’ with an indie folk vibe.

[] Justin McRoberts – Prayer

[] An Un-Ash Wednesday Service 

  • The pastoral action of touching the head in scripture is always a sign of blessing and healing. I have some convictions about how the imposition of ashes goes against a very strong biblical current…but that’s just me. SERVICE PDF
