Blessings of the Cross invites you to explore God’s hope and presence presented in the scripture readings for Lent and Easter. Key Bible readings call us to praise God as we contemplate God’s redemption and new creation through the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Through the readings, we hear the call to celebrate the blessings of new life offered through Jesus Christ.
The study for Lent and Easter in the Scriptures for the Church Seasons series is based upon the Revised Common Lectionary scriptures for the church year, a three year cycle that includes readings from the Old Testament, the Psalms, the Gospels, and the Epistles. Blessings of the Cross offers the opportunity to explore these Bible readings in a seven-session study. It will help you understand, appreciate, and participate in prayerful reflection and celebration of Lent and Easter and inspire you to live each day with God's blessings of life and salvation through Jesus Christ.
A seven-session leader’s guide is available for use in Sunday school classes or other small groups.
