  1. […] Reminder: Lent and Beyond is the place to go for Lent 2010 February 17 by Will I just wanted to post a reminder that over the years the good people at Lent and Beyond – An Anglican Prayer Blog have been invaluable in their compilation of resources for us to use during Lent.  Their “sticky” post for Lent 2010 can be found here: Lent 2010 at Lent and Beyond […]

  2. Just a note to all: I’ve not yet updated the Lent links sidebar for 2010. I’ll try to get to that on Thursday.

    I so appreciate all of those who have commented recently and sent such encouragement and have posted links to the Lent resources here.

    Please let us know if there are any resources we’ve missed or types of Lent posts that would be a blessing.

    Many folks seem to come here searching for Lent Quotes. I’m often better at finding prayers to post. We welcome readers’ submissions of quotes or other Lenten materials. You can email us: AnglicanPrayer@gmail.com

  6. BookGirl says:

    “Make me a channel of your peace
    Where there is hatred, let me sow love
    Where there is injury, let me sow pardon
    Where there is doubt, let me sow faith”

    Just in time for Easter, the most religious of all Christian holidays, comes Spiritual writer Joann Davis’s new and timely book, THE BOOK OF THE SHEPHERD*. In her simple fable about a shepherd who goes on a journey to find a “new way” Davis explores the role personal action can play in making the world a more peaceful place. Writing about an unnamed past, Davis re-imagines the origin of one of the most popular prayers in Christianity, The Simple Prayer, and renames it the Law of Substitution. She creates a shepherd, a former slave and a young boy and sends them on an adventure that will test each of them in turn, meeting apocryphal figures like the Storyteller, the Apothecary, a Blind Man, and a Stranger whose stories, skills, and intentions help prepare the three for their final test. They will rely on each other in critical ways, learning first-hand about character, courage, and the priceless gifts that come with reckless generosity.

    Davis’s message of peace is the perfect topic as we approach Holy Week.

    *Named one of the best books in 2009 by Spirituality and Practice.

    Joann Davis has spent most of her career working with books. A former news editor at Publishers Weekly, an editor at the publishing imprints Warner Books, William Morrow, and HarperCollins, Davis acquired and edited a number of bestsellers, among them The Celestine Prophecy. Davis is the author of nine books including, The Best Things in Life Aren’t Things, What I Love Most About You, The Little Secret that Can Change Your Life, and A Friend is a Gift. Her books have been published in Italy, Mexico, Japan and Indonesia. She is married to New York Times bestselling author Kenneth C. Davis they have two grown children and divide their time between New York City and Dorset, Vermont.
