Want More Bonhoeffer?
Spend Lent with him (and me) . . .
For forty days, March 1 through Easter Eve, April 13, I’ll do a special podcast using Ron Klug’s Lenten devotional, 40-Day Journey with Dietrich Bonhoeffer. You can purchase the devotional (and support our work) by buying it at smile.amazon.com and choosing for your designated charity, “P&R Schenck Associates in Evangelism.”
The devotional includes Bonhoeffer quotes, Bible verses, questions to ponder, and prayers for each of the 40 days of Lent. For Christians unfamiliar with Lent, here’s a nice summary from The Upper Room:
“Lent is a season of the Christian Year where Christians focus on simple living, prayer, and fasting in order to grow closer to God . . . At Jesus’ baptism the sky split open, the Spirit of God, which looked like a dove, descended and landed on Jesus, and a voice from heaven said, ‘This is my Son, My Beloved, with whom I am pleased.’ Afterward, as told in Matthew 4:1-11, Jesus was sent into the wilderness by the Spirit where He fasted and prayed for 40 days. During his time there He was tempted by Satan and found clarity and strength to resist temptation. Afterwards, He was ready to begin his ministry.”
You can invite your church, Sunday school class, or home group to join us in this Lenten experience. You can also form your own Lenten prayer circle to take this journey with us!
Here are the details:
