Days of Grace: A Forty Day Journey with Jesus
Lent is a solemn time, but it is not meant to be a miserable one...We may keep before and one 01 the most comforting and encouraging sayings of Jesus: 7 came that they might have life and have it none abundantly.' From the author's preface. This daily companion will take us through Lent using as our guide the biblical images of Journeys, Mountains, Light, Food and Healing to help us think about the life of faith as we pass through the world. In Holy Week, each of these themes is explored in the experience of Jesus as Good Friday approaches. Forty daily devotions each begin with a passage from the Bible, followed by commentary, a meditation to link the scriptures to our own lives, questions for reflection, a selection of prayers and short readings, and a 'thought for the day' to give sustenance and strength. Encouraging, challenging, but above all reassuring, Days of Grace will help us discover Lent as a time of spiritual progress and growth.
