For Ash Wednesday, the six Sundays of Lent, and Easter Sunday, we provide you with the following:
These Lenten and Easter liturgies are written to connect with An Illustrated Lent for Families: This is My Body, and our This is My Body Lenten Devotional (both the Illustrated and Text-only editions) for a fully This is My Body-themed Lent. At the same time, these liturgies can be used by themselves, apart from the other materials.
This is Sanctified Art's bundle of 11 multimedia ministry resources for the season of Lent–Easter, following the RCL for Year A. Download the free theme infographic to learn more about the theme, Seeking. Each resource is also available separately.

Central to the Lenten study are three actions:
1) Ash Wednesday Action (February 22): call a fast from credit cards held by the four major banks funding fossil fuels/climate disaster: includes links to Stop the Money Pipeline materials for talking to branch managers. Sarah Lasoff, rabbi in a Florida Jewish synagogue in Florida who has spoken to over 13 bank managers provides training materials. The credit card fast lasts until Tuesday, March 21st.
2) Dis-credit Bad Banks Day of Action put forward by Third Act Day on March 21st. Again, an invitation to talk to bank managers seeking transformation. We model persistence and relationships.
3) Finally, with the possibility of no action, there is a Foot-Washing Liturgy and Jericho Walk that can be done on Maundy Thursday (April 6th) or on Earth Day, (April 22nd).
Within the pages are also creation centered Lectio Divina and examen and creation music playlists. I also included within the folder creation-centered baptism and communion liturgy.
Please let Mike know if you use it (firstname.lastname@example.org ) and/or with any questions.
