In every culture and time, persons of faith, of all ages, have summoned trials and tribulations to find the endurance and strength to dance. They have danced with the weight of the world upon their shoulders, sustained by God and others dancing near them.
Hard to Dance With the Devil On Your Back is a seven-session Lenten study that looks at the transcendent struggle in the lives of believers, while helping us to enter the continually crumbling world surrounding Jesus and the disciples in the days preceding Jesus.
Appropriate for both group and individual use, the study provides one lesson for each week in Lent. Each lesson includes a Scripture reference, a brief reading, questions for reflection or discussion, a brief prayer, and a focus for the coming week.
