This year we are using two resources on our journey through Lent to Easter and Holy Week.
The first is a 6-week course on Kindness, called Extravagant Generosity and Unexpected Acts of Kindness and is written by Rev Dr David W Perry. It’s definitely worth exploring.
The other is a Devotional called Let Wisdom Speak, and is prepared by All We Can — a Methodist international development and relief organisation. You can find out more about All We Can on their website and social media:
Let Wisdom Speak is an exciting new resource to take you on your Lenten journey, as you hear the voices of incredible women from around the world. You can download it as one complete PDF file covering the whole of Lent, or as smaller individual files each covering a week.
