Living in the Promised Land is a worship and preaching resource for Lent (Year B) which includes in-depth commentaries on the Old Testament and Gospel texts (based on the Revised Common Lectionary), thematic liturgies for each week (including a special Service of the Table), small group guidelines, and graphics for projection.
Note: Daily Devotions are not included, but can be obtained free of charge for every day at the Daily Worship blog (with an option to receive them a week at a time by email with a donwload link to the week’s guides in PDF format).

Lent remains a powerful journey of penitence, spiritual discipline and preparation for the Holy Week experience. As such, it requires nearly as much creative energy as Holy Week, but over a more extended time.

Any part of this resource may be freely photocopied or distributed within a single local church for congregational use.

Each Chapter includes a thematic liturgy, and a guide for small group work, so that Living in the Promised Land is not just an experience, but a journey into a different way of being that can have lasting effects for the rest of the year.
In addition, in order to make the worship more engaging, each week’s liturgy includes creative suggestions for response activities and meditations, and graphics to give a visual “hook” for the journey.
