Through Thick and Thin: Devotions for Ash Wednesday Through Easter, written by Beth Sollenberger, is the 2024 Lenten devotional from Brethren Press. This year, the season of Lent begins with Ash Wednesday on Feb. 14. The daily devotions continue through Easter Sunday, March 31.
“An important part of the Easter story is the Road to Emmaus, in Luke, when people walked and talked with Jesus and recognized the living Christ standing, striding alongside, or pausing to share supper across the table,” said an announcement.
“This devotional shares stories of God’s presence in everyday people along the journey. It invites you to identify God’s presence in the people you meet along your own journey. Enjoy these stories of how Christ’s love and grace are revealed by those who are with us through thick and thin.”
This year’s devotional includes several days’ prayers translated into a variety of languages including Gujarati, Spanish, Navajo, Swahili, Haitian Kreyol, and Hausa.
The Brethren Press devotional series is published twice a year, in the church seasons of Advent and Lent, as a pocket-sized paperback suitable for individual use and for congregations to provide to their members.
