Lenten Devotionals 2012: “Up to Jerusalem”

Now is the time to sign up for this year’s Lenten Devotionals!


The forty days of Lent begin on Ash Wednesday, February 22nd and continue until April 8th, Easter Sunday.  This year’s devotional series for Lent will prepare your heart as you walk the steps that Jesus walked and sing the songs He would have sung on His pilgrimage to the Passover.


Just as stereo speakers give depth to music, we will let Psalms 120-134, The Songs of Ascents, speak to us and inspire us deeply as we see how they applied during Jesus’ journey “Up to Jerusalem.”  

“As the time approached for him to be taken up to heaven, 
Jesus resolutely set out for Jerusalem.”  

(Luke 9:51)

To sign up, enter your e-mail address on my Home page sidebar and devotionals will be sent to your e-mail during the forty days of Lent.

    You’re welcome! Hopefully the form on the right sidebar of the Home Page was easy enough to use. Last year, the devotionals were very well received and this year’s series is shaping up to be really interesting. I’ve actually been quite astonished to see how the Songs of Ascents overlay so well with Jesus’ travel narrative. Hope you enjoy them!

    One more item, you will probably receive a confirmation link in an email (which you click to confirm that you have subscribed). If it’s not in your email, check your spam folder. There will be 2 Chapel Worship guides which you will receive prior to Ash Wednesday as a test of your address and confirmation of a successful sign-up. Then you will receive e-mails for each of the 40 days of Lent (Mondays through Saturdays) and on Sundays, the Chapel Worship guides arrive.

    I was looking for a devotional for Lent based on the Psalms of Ascent so I am super excited to receive your devotionals! Praying for the Lord to reveal more of who He is and who I am in Him in fresh new ways during this journey. Grace and peace…

    I’m so pleased that the Lord led you here! These devotionals are meant for anyone looking to grow closer in relationship with God during Lent. “Up to Jerusalem” seemed to be a fitting title on several different levels. (In seminary, I was always the one who tried to put the cookies on more than the lowest shelf in my preaching). My hope is that whatever the starting place of your journey, “Up to Jerusalem” will lift your gaze to the presence of God. Thanks for joining me in this journey! In Christ, B
