Creative resources for Lent (year b)

This Lent, we long for a faith that engages all of who we are—mind, body, heart and soul—and invites us to be present in our bodies and in the present moment. We remember the ways Jesus integrated his humanity and divinity to fulfill his radical ministry. Similarly, we too are invited to bring all of who we are to God, to live out the love that chooses to be embodied in us.

This bundle encompasses 7 multimedia resources to stir minds, bodies, hearts, and souls. Inspired by the EMBODIED theme, we have also worked closely from the Revised Common Lectionary scriptures for Lent (Year B). We hope you'll either make this theme your own, adapt it, or ditch it—it's entirely up to you. Since most of our resources are guided by the RCL, we hope they can be applicable to other themes/directions.

This season, may we see, sense, feel, and know the One who stepped into skin and ultimately rose beyond the grave so that everlasting love might live on—so that everlasting love might be embodied in you and me.

PS: Check out this recent newsletter to learn more about how we arrived at our EMBODIED theme and get some ideas for how to flesh it out throughout the Lenten season.

1. EMBODIED Coloring Calendar + Devotional Guide


[Individual Price: $18-$85]

This 2-part devotional resource features a large mosaic-like design filled with 40 shapes to color day-by-day. The individual shapes hold imagery inspired by daily scripture (all the RCL Year B scriptures for Lent and Holy Week). Our Devotional Guide includes scripture, artist reflections, and embodied prayer prompts. We invite you to walk through each day of Lent reading the daily scripture, finding and coloring in the shape inspired by that text, reflecting on the artist's commentary, and offering a short prayer that engages mind, body, heart, and soul.

Download includes three size options for printing the Coloring Calendar as a large poster as well as a print-ready PDF file of the 26-page devo, formatted to print b/w on 8.5x11 sheets to fold into an 8.5 x 5.5 booklet. This is a great devotional resource for people of ALL ages (in fact, we get the most positive feedback from our senior and elderly friends) and we imagine families with children coloring the shapes and reading the daily reflections together.

[Individual Price: $25]

This short film explores what it means to relent in the midst of suffering and lament. Pairing time lapse imagery with the words of Psalm 31, this film could be offered as a visual lament in worship or used in bible study/discussion groups around similar themes.

Relenting is not a passive act; it is the surrender we come to when we bear all our pain— openly, honestly, angrily—before the One who can take it all.

This Lent, create beautiful sanctuary art to illuminate the embodied theme. These designs by Hannah Garrity feature abstract imagery of mind, body, heart, and soul. We hope these designs (and our instructional materials) can simply be a starting point for you to create art and beauty that is uniquely your own. Gather a group and create together, for the creative process is just as meaningful as the final result.
