Lent devotions

Every year I find there are so many choices of what to use for my daily devotions during Lent. This year I realised the two books I had chosen, one a daily devotional and the other a themed book both had the same underlying theme of Forgiving (this wasn’t intentional when I chose them).

The Living Cross will certainly see me through to Easter Day, and looking at the recommendations at the end of the book The book of Forgiving is recommended for further reading. 

Though I think The book of Forgiving may be finished by the end of next week. I read the introduction and was hooked. Trying to read a little each day I end up reading more than intended – now I’m about half way though. I may need to look for some further reading, if anyone has any suggestions I would love to hear them.

“In South Africa, Ubuntu is our way of making sense the world. The word literally means ‘humanity’. It is the philosophy and belief that a person is only a person through other people. In other words, we are human only in relation to other humans. Our humanity is bound up in one another, and any tear in the faberic of connection between us must be repaired for us all to be made whole. This interconnectedness is the very root of who we are.” The Book of Forgiving by Desmond & Mpho Tutu. Pg 8

Well worth reading!

    That looks fascinating. I found the work of the Truth and Reconcilation court fascinating when it was happening post-apartheid. Would love to have a read.
