Protestants Celebrating Lent

easterlentHere are some resources to help draw you and your family closer to the risen Lord. Please remember that we are not bound to law. I know many protestants who do not celebrate Lent,  and believe it is a “Catholic” thing. But in my humble opinion there is no better time to dive into Easter story which is a most crucial part of the Gospel! So although we tend to avoid most secular activities that pertain to Easter we do enjoy a very festive Easter.

Easter & Lent Activities & Food

Hey what kind of Baptist would I be if I didn’t mention food!?!

Devotionals for the family

Much the same as Advent, Lent is also a time to turn toward the risen Christ. Except this time we are celebrating his  death instead of his life. Each day during Lent we will read a little Lent devotional and discuss it, thus keeping us pretty focused on the resurrection of our Lord, Jesus.

Here are some activities that you can do with your family during the Lenten Season.

We have been doing Resurrection  Easter Egg Set – 12 Resurrection Eggs With Religious Figurines Inside – Tells Full Story of Easter  for about 13 years. Our kids look forward to exploring every egg and discussing the relationship between the eggs and the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus.

Read Books

Of course during the 40 days of lent we will be reading books about the Resurrection as well as the actual truth of the Resurrection found in the Bible.  Here are are some of the books that we currently own that tell the truth of the Resurrection. Our newest book for this year  is the Donkey Who Carried the King by RC Sproul. Again we are using these books and this time of year to turn our thoughts toward the Resurrection and ultimately the gospel.

  1. Hey Kyle,
    At least today’s time warp into the internet was a worth while excursion! Loved the ideas.

  2. Lots of good ideas. We have eggs that our kids can open and find a little something that shares part of the Easter story. I really like it. Thx for linking up at the Thoughtful Spot!
