A guide to Lent that invites spiritual observance and a willingness to be transformed by grace. Lent is a time of year when Christians of all backgrounds open themselves to a deeper relationship with God through prayer, fasting, spiritual reading, and other disciplines. Small Surrenders provides a perfect daily guide to this holy season, with forty-seven meditations for Lenten weekdays, Sundays and Easter Sunday. Emilie Griffin uses brief, provocative quotations from ancient and modern sources as starting-points for her warm, conversational meditations, which focus on deepening the spiritual life. Readers will gain new insights on various aspects of Lent - the "small surrenders" we make throughout the season - including the attitudes we should bring to Lent, our relationship to Jesus Christ during these days, the disciplines we may adopt, and how to maintain commitment over such an extended time. Major sources for reflection are Jesus' time in the wilderness, as well as the final week of Lent when we observe his passion, death, and resurrection. Griffin also provides a brief history of Lent and considers the value of Lenten practice in contemporary life.
