ONLINE – Lutheran Hour Ministries (LHM) has released its 2015 devotional booklet for Lent, which begins this week on Ash Wednesday.

This year’s series is entitled The Light Shines in the Darkness, and focuses on the Gospel of John.

“In John 9:5b Jesus declared, ‘… I am the Light of the world.’ That will be the theme of our Lenten journey as we follow Jesus of Nazareth to His cross and empty tomb,” the introduction to the devotional reads. “From the very beginning of His Gospel to the end, John follows the tremendous struggle between Jesus Christ and the forces of darkness gathered together against him.”

Lent is a 40-day period of repentance leading up to the commemoration of the death and resurrection of Christ. During this season, many Christians choose to spend special time in prayer, Scripture reading, almsgiving, and fasting.

LHM has long released annual devotion booklets for both Lent and Advent. This year’s series can be read or listened to online at LHM’s website. You can also receive the daily devotions through an email subscription.
