A Lenten Blog Tour
On February 22nd, we enter into the season of Lent. Many may misunderstand this time or feel indifferent to it, but this is a transformative period. Kimberlee Conway Ireton, in her book, The Circle of Seasons, describes it this way:
We hope to accept this challenge and feel gratitude for this gift throughout the coming months. To help us, we’ve invited several IVP authors to contribute their thoughts and devotions to a Lenten blog tour.
Every Monday until Easter, a Lenten reflection by one of our authors will be posted on his or her own personal blog. A variety of authors have volunteered, and we are excited to share the different perspectives of each during this holy season.
