Illustrated Ministry is pleased to be offering our Lenten family resource, An Illustrated Lent for Families.
An Illustrated Lent for Families includes devotionals, activity sheets, and coloring sheets for families to use together as they journey through Lent.
We know there are churches who enjoy creating their own devotional resources for families in their congregations - but we are also aware of how time-consuming that can be. We want to be able to resource and support families, as well as provide a theologically-rich product for churches to feel comfortable sending home with their children and families. We have over 45 denominations who use our materials, so you will find that our materials work in a variety of different theological settings and contexts.
We've received a lot of positive feedback about our previous releases of An Illustrated Lent for Families, and this edition has been created with all of your feedback and suggestions in mind.
When you purchase An Illustrated Lent for Families, we will provide you with:
Family Devotions: Seven weeks of family devotions that are simple, but meaningful. The seven devotions are based on Gospel readings from the Revised Common Lectionary for Lent 2018. Each devotion includes a brief reflection, discussion questions, an activity, and a prayer for each week.
Activity & Coloring Sheets: There are seven coloring sheets that tie in with both the weekly scripture and activity.
We are very excited about this year's resource, and we know you will love it too!
If you'd like to read a blog review of the first edition of our Illustrated Lent for Families, please take a few minutes to read a review of An Illustrated Lent for Families by the Bishop of the Diocese of Indianapolis, The Rev. Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows. Rev. Baskerville-Burrows wrote the following about last year's devotional resource:
The illustrations are beautifully drawn and invite—almost compel—one to get out the markers and spend time with it. The devotions that are assigned to each week are easily adapted for whatever age person is in the conversation. They don’t presume that you’ve been to seminary to engage the questions and they serve as prompts for how we are called to live as Jesus would have us live. [Read more here...]
