Lent Book 2016

Version 2IMG_3906Worshipping God is the theme for our Diocese this year, and this Lent we are encouraged to do this through statues and prayer!

Praying the Statues is our Diocesan Lent Book and resource, written by Bishop Andy. Copies are now being distributed throughout our Diocese. It can also be downloaded here.

It is the fruit of Bishop Andy’s sabbatical period at the end of last year. He visited a number of statues in various locations around Britain and in the book he reflects on them and their meaning. A different statue is considered for each week of Lent.

If you would like to hear Bishop Andy talking about the book, please do listen to the podcast below. Bishop Andy hopes that this book will encourage thought, response and discussion, as well as assisting our pilgrimage of prayer as individuals and a Diocese this Lent.
