Photo a Day for Lent Challenge

One of the things I have grown in doing has been a photo a day for Advent and Lent. Usually there is one put out by RethinkChurch, a wonderful United Methodist site.

But this evening when I went there to discover their photo a day for Lent listing I could not find it…

So I Googled: Photo a day lent…

I found one at Catholic Sistas which is good, but I would have had to modify it for my Lutheran understanding…

So as I was lying in bed I started thinking of my sermon for Ash Wednesday and my sermon for the first Sunday during Lent and words started popping into my mind. So I created my own picture a day challenge for Lent.

So here it is…

Picture a day Lent 2014

I will be uploading my photos here and on Pinterest.

If you join me in this adventure please post a comment on my post here for the my picture of the day with a link to your picture.

I pray that this adventure will draw you closer to God as we travel these 40 days of Lent with our Savior!

  1. Thanks for linking up to us! Even if you aren’t Catholic, we are finding many non-Catholics are joining us. There are actually not many words that don’t apply to non-Catholics – even the word Catholic itself means “universal” and Eucharist means “thanksgiving” – truly, there are ways for any person to participate, which is great news!

    I invite you to consider joining ours as our participation last year was incredibly fruitful – and any chance we have to be ecumenical in our pursuit of the Lord, it always yields spiritual fruit.

    Blessed Lent. 🙂

    1. You are correct we can all participate in any given devotional out there. I did have to do a little research on Laetare Sunday in your list that was really the only word I did not know. I would have changed that to rejoice and would have done universal for catholic and either thanksgiving or communion for Eucharist and maybe changed Mass to gathering. But it would have worked. And I wanted to make sure people saw your list. Thank you for your ministry!

  2. Is there a link to or an explanation for the chosen words for each day? I would love to follow along and add scripture to each picture each day

    1. Evy they are based on the lectionary texts for the Sundays of Lent.

      Here is a break down for you:
      March 5 – 8 are based on Matthew 6:1-6, 16-21
      March 9 – 15 are based on Matthew 4:1-11
      March 16 – 22 are based on John 3:1-17
      March 23 – 29 are based on John 4:5-42
      March 30 – April 5 are based on John 9:1-41
      April 6 – 12 are based on John 11:1-45
      April 13-16 are based on Matthew 21:1-11
      April 17 is based on John 13:1-17, 31b-35
      April 18 is based on John 19:38-42
      April 19 is based on John 20:1-18
      April 20 is based on Matthew 28:1-10

      I hope that helps!

  3. A friend of mine from church posted pictures last year and is doing so again this year. I am planning on writing a brief meditation for each day to make into a Lenten poem.
