Lent resources

[From Gafcon:] There is a broad range of practices that Anglicans follow during the Lenten season. In an age of increasing instant gratification, the practice of Lent leading up to Easter runs against the tide in many cultures.  Gafcon is providing three videos entitled The Journey, with the hope that they will help prepare your hearts and minds, as you enter into this season. We have drawn from people, songs, cultures, and images from around the world so that you can be encouraged and equipped…

Part One video here including contributions from Anglicans in Pakistan, Australia, Burundi and North America.

Part Two featuring a conversation between Archbishop Foley Beach and Keith and Kristin Getty, who perform a new recording of a song.

Part Three includes more teaching and music from Brazil, Uganda and Kenya.
