In these brief meditations, Kate Moorehead (Dean of St. John's Cathedral, Jacksonville, FL ) invites us to keep a Lenten fast contemplating themes of planting, growth and harvest in Jesus' parables.

The Lenten meditations in Kate Moorehead's newest book focus on the nature of sin and repentance in our contemporary context.


In A Season for the Spirit Episcopal priest Martin Smith offers daily theological reflections and prayers on themes of compassion, self-knowledge, wholeness and reconciliation. A reflective companion for the 40 days of Lent.





Michael Sullivan (rector of Holy Innocents' in Atlanta, GA) invites us to open our souls to God's redeeming love in this Lenten journey of stories and art. Each week is an enlightening exploration of scripture through prayer, story, poetry, and art exercises.

Episcopal priest Christopher Webber provides readings from the Anglican tradition for each day in Lent. This volume includes readings from Christina Rossetti, John Donne, Philips Brooks, Harriet Beecher Stowe and many others.
