I (Karen) have been traveling much of the past 6 weeks, which explains my recent blog and Twitter silence. Thankfully Jill and Torre have been posting regularly.
It’s hard to believe there is only one week until Lent. I’m not yet sure whether I’ll commit to any Lenten devotional blogging. I always enjoy it, but I think this year I may need to focus on other priorities.
In the meantime, here are links to various of our Lent categories which you may enjoy browsing.
Ash Wednesday links & resources
All Lent entries
Lent Music & Hymns
Lent: Children & Families
Tomorrow I’ll try to post links to specific blog entries, especially those featuring compilations of Lent Resources, Devotionals, Poems, etc., both from here at L&B as well as other sites around the internet.
UPDATE: Here are two important entries with lots of Lent links:
More Lent Links – contains links to indexes of our past years’ Lent entries and major compilations, such as our compilations of Lent poems and Good Friday poems
Links for Lent 2015 – our brand new, LONG list of links to good sites for Lent reading around the web. Blogs, poems, music, devotionals, Bible reading plans…. there’s a lot here!

Isaiah 6:1-4 (ESV) Isaiah’s Vision of the Lord
In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above him stood the seraphim. Each had six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. And one called to another and said:
“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts;
the whole earth is full of his glory!”
And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who called, and the house was filled with smoke.
You are sovereign, majestic, high and lifted up. You are the God of the angel armies. You are the One who sent His Son Jesus, whose name is above all names. Your Word goes forth and does not return to You empty. Your presence is manifest in the General Synod today.
Woe are we! We are lost and a people of unclean lips.
Uproot that which the enemy has rooted in the General Synod and Church of England. Plaw a new field, and sow seeds of righteousness, truth, and love. Sow seeds that will bring life in the future.
Yes to Your promise for this church! Would that the train of Your robe would fill the Church of England. Amen.
