Scripturally-based readings to complement your Lenten journey. The Way this most ancient naming of the Church in the Book of Acts reminds Christians we are a people on a journey of faith. But what signposts might guide us on this way? Way Words provides an itinerary of daily readings based on scripture for the journey we make during the season of Lent. Each of its daily readings, starting with Ash Wednesday and concluding with Easter Sunday, will explore one concise phrase or verse from the Old or NewTestament that offers a spiritual guidepost for modern-day disciples on the Way ofJesus Christ. Each of the short forty-seven readings includes a scripture excerpt, followed by a brief prayer or spiritual exercise. This resource is written for personal study and devotional use during Lent. Introductory reading: Ash Wednesday Week One: Holy Foundations Week Two: Godward Callings Week Three: Crucial Decisions Week Four: Community Fashionings Week Five: Faithful Practices Week Six: Enlarging Vistas HolyWeek: Saving Mysteries
