Wandering Heart: Figuring Out Faith with Peter

This Sanctified Art series focuses on the life and faith of Peter, in whom we see a person who is both steadfast and unsteady, a dear friend and a betrayer, a follower and a wanderer. In Peter, we often see ourselves. By following Peter’s journey, we watch the story of Jesus unfold through the eyes of a very normal human trying to figure it all out just like us.

Highlights include:

  • We have selected focal texts that feature the significant moments in Peter’s journey—from becoming a disciple to meeting the risen Christ.
  • The focal texts for Holy week are still traditional Lenten selections, and the entire series is crafted with overarching Lenten themes in mind.
  • The theme and weekly sub-themes are inspired by lyrics from the hymn, "Come Thou Fount."
  • The bundle includes 11 resources plus bonuses and free supplements.

On Not Taking Lent out on Our Bodies

From the gray of Ash Wednesday to the brilliant dawn of Easter Sunday, the season of Lent is a journey through color. And so what better guides to this journey than the words of Scripture and the art of Henri Matisse, one of the most daring, influential artists in modern history?

(For a family-oriented version of this devotional, check out “Into the Wild: A Family-Friendly Devotional on Henri Matisse and the Season of Lent.” And by the way, the two resources are designed so they can be used side-by-side, for congregations who want to explore the season together, across generations.)



This Lent, let Vincent be your guide.

In this 24-page devotional, biblical texts and Van Gogh’s paintings and letters throw light on each other, pointing toward simple, powerful Lenten practices.

Make this Lent and Easter the most beautiful yet!



Lent is a time of reflection and insight, a change of seasons - and Emily Dickinson, one of the world’s most beloved poets, was also an avid gardener and a careful observer of the natural world. In this Lenten devotional, biblical texts and simple, accessible practices weave together with Dickinson’s poetic vision, creating a 40-day journey into the heart of the holiest week of the year.

Reading Between the Lines is a 6 week study inclusive of Lent 1 – Palm/Passion Sunday which follows the Revised Common Lectionary (YEAR A, B or C) text selections. Through a series of guided questions the participant journeys along the weekly storyline to unpack where these stories are happening in our world today, in our communities, and within ourselves. This rich sensory resource utilizes art, poetry and prose to explore the characters and stories that lead up to Easter Sunday. Also included is a FURTHER EXPLORATION section that explores further the season of LENT using supplemental materials, quotes and thought-provoking excerpts.

40acts is the generosity challenge for Lent, created by UK Christian charity, Stewardship. For ten years, 40acts has asked a question: what if Lent could be about more than just giving stuff up? What if it could be a time of radical generosity as well as spiritual discipline? Over the years, 40acts has become a movement of over 100,000 people on a mission to impact their communities with generosity – during Lent and beyond.
