Building on the success of last year’s #LiveLent: Care for God’s Creation, the 2021 Lent resources from the Church of England will again mirror the theme of the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Lent Book, creating a significant shared focus for the whole Church at a key time of year for people’s discipleship and learning in the faith.
The Archbishop’s Lent Book, written by Hannah Steele and published by SPCK, is called ‘Living His Story: Sharing the extraordinary love of God in ordinary ways’ and explores the ideas of story, witness and evangelism. The book will be accompanied by free online materials for groups by Chris Russell, with video interviews and more.
The theme for the Church of England’s resources (including daily reflections in printed and digital formats from Church House Publishing, as per previous campaigns) is #LiveLent: God’s Story, Our Story. The material is introduced by the Archbishops, who write: ‘The invitation of this year’s #LiveLent to all of us is to participate in God’s story. To make it so much part of our own stories that our own lives become impossible to understand without it. And then to be tellers of this story, and the change it has brought to us …’
