On this Ash Wednesday, as we enter this special time of Lent, we want to remind you that there are many tools and resources from The Upper Room available for your personal and church-wide journey to Easter.
- Starting today, sign up to receive 50 free daily devotionals via email during Lent. The devotionals based on the “I Am” sayings of Jesus provide insight into Jesus’ identity and our own purpose as disciples. Sign up: http://www.thegodwecanknow.com/subscribe-now/
- During Lent 2015, the Sunday meditations in The Upper Room daily devotional guide will also explore the “I Am” sayings of Jesus. These scriptures and meditations were chosen to correspond with the weekly lessons in The God We Can Know, a new church-wide resource from Upper Room Books.
- Alive Now invites you to join them on a prayerful forty-day journey toward the empty tomb with prayers by Robert P. Fugarino: http://alivenow.upperroom.org/2015/01/23/lenten-prayers-2015/
Looking for help with Holy Week Services?
- We invite you to journey along with scripture for each day of Holy Week, beginning with Palm Sunday and going through Easter Sunday. Links to each of these texts can be found on the Alive Now blog: http://alivenow.upperroom.org/2015/02/15/2015-holy-week-scriptures/
- Available for Lent and throughout the year: The Upper Room Disciplines 2015 is a devotional guide for Christians who want to delve deeper into scripture and apply it to their daily lives. Fifty-three writers from diverse Christian backgrounds share messages of hope, challenge, and joy. Each daily reading includes a focal scripture passage from the Revised Common Lectionary, a meditation related to the scripture, and a prayer or suggestion for reflection.
A Time and Place for Reflection
- Visitors to The Upper Room Chapel and Museum in Nashville, Tennessee can experience the special exhibit “The Faces of the Passion of Christ.” Starting March 2, explore the teachings of Jesus as seen through paintings and sculptures in the styles of the great masters. See the intricacy of hand-designed Christian symbolism on over 50 Ukrainian eggs. View the beauty of international artistic portrayals of The Last Supper story and the passion week of Jesus. “Faces of the Passion of Christ” explores the face of Jesus, the faces of the people nearest to Jesus as well as the followers of Jesus throughout the ages. The Upper Room Chapel, Museum, and Bookstore is open Monday through Friday, 8 am to 4:30 pm. Parking is free.
- We invite you to our 7-week eCourse on The God We Can Know. Author Rob Fuquay explores what Jesus meant when he said “I Am…the Bread of Life; the Light of the World; the Good Shepherd; the True Vine; the Way, the Truth, and the Life; the Resurrection and the Life.” Each week, we’ll focus on scripture commentary and stories from Rob’s personal experiences to help connect the “I Am” sayings to our daily lives. Sign up today and experience Lent with our growing online community. http://elearning.upperroom.org/events/173
