Lent devotional booklet available for families

February 28, 2017

Restore Us, O God. This is the title of the new Lent 2017 booklet designed for families to use in their home devotional times. Restore Us, O God can be used whenever and however it fits into a home’s routines and life stage realities. Families could use it once a week and pick an activity that matches their interests. Others might use it daily, repeating the litany each day of the week, reading the daily scripture recommendation, and perhaps choosing an appropriate response activity. The weekly themes are based on the Lent worship resources by Leader magazine, which is used in many Mennonite congregations. Weekly themes are: We Hunger, We Wonder, We Thirst, We See, We Breathe, We Hope—and finally on Easter—We Live! Educator and faith formation advocate Elsie Rempel wrote the material, and the booklet was sponsored by AnabaptistFaithFormation.org and Central Plains Mennonite Conference. It can be downloaded without charge from www.commonword.ca/go/748.  —Mennonite Church Canada
