The 2016 Lenten devotional from Brethren Press is written by Chris Bowman and titled, “Let Us Also Go: Devotions for Ash Wednesday Through Easter.” Brethren Press publishes a Lenten and Advent devotional each year, in a pocket-sized format suitable for individual use and for congregations to supply to their members.
“Followers of Jesus, after all, follow Jesus,” said an explanation of the theme for the Lenten devotional. “And if he’s headed toward the cross, so will we. As Thomas said to his fellow disciples, ‘Let us also go, that we may die with him’ (John 11:16). This is the moment of discipleship where faithfulness is primary and consequence becomes secondary.”
Author Chris Bowman is lead pastor of Manassas (Va.) Church of the Brethren, and was moderator of the 2004 Annual Conference. He also served as chair of the Church of the Brethren General Board from 1997-98.
The devotional booklet includes daily devotions, scripture texts, and prayers for each day of the Lenten season from Ash Wednesday, Feb. 10, through Easter Sunday, March 27. Cost per copy is $2.75, or $5.95 for large print. Order online at www.brethrenpress.com or from Brethren Press customer service at 800-441-3712.
