With Lent only a few weeks away, I know that many of my readers are already looking for scripture plans and devotional books to read, so I thought that this year I would start early with listing Lenten resources. This year, I am starting with possible plans for daily scripture readings. Obviously there are hundreds out there. Written, online, downloadable you choose. I have tried to provide these from a number of theological backgrounds. If there are others you think should be on the list please let me know. And by the way the photo is of a 500 year old Bible – seemed appropriate for the season especially (at least to me) that though the method we use to study may change, the message is timeless.
Sacred Space – Daily Prayer with the Irish Jesuits
Pray as You Go – also from the Jesuits. Daily prayer for portable MP3 players.

Love your suggestions! I was searching for something to use with my small church for Lent, several weeks ago. I happened to follow some links, and I came across http://www.40acts.org.uk — their focus for the Lenten season is to do Lent generously. Do 40 acts of generosity during Lent, and see how your neighborhood/workplace/church/school changes by Easter! I thought this was a marvelous idea!
I signed up for the 40acts sermon notes for our church, to use during Lent for a Generous sermon series! I am looking forward to a time of generosity. And, who knows what will happen? Exciting times.
I also successfully completely a daily blog in 2014, A Year of Being Kind: 365 Days of Service. I’m still doing a #BestOf series. Here’s the blog post for Friday: Being Kind with Singing Valentines (Feature Friday!) #BestOf #ayearofbeingkind http://wp.me/p4cOf8-mE
Again, thanks so much for your wonderful collection of suggestions. @chaplaineliza
I am glad that you appreciated this and thanks for the additional resources. 40 days of generosity is a wonderful idea. I will add this to the resource lists.
