This 14-week devotional book includes daily Scripture readings from the Old Testament and New Testament, prayers, discussion prompts for small-group participation, and, each Sunday, a devotional reflection on the gospel reading. This book is specifically designed to be used either individually or for small groups from Ash Wednesday to Pentecost.
The Ashes to Fire Year C Devotional will create an intentional and intensive fellowship with Jesus by guiding readers through worship, personal Bible study, daily devotions, and spiritual readings.
