Songs of the Spirit give readers of all kinds a new, emotional response to the period of Lent by holding to its heart the Psalms, rather than sticking firmly within the pages of the Gospels. Freshly translated by Rev. Megan Daffern herself, these Psalms and readings are an insightful door to appreciate the countless varieties of ways we can respond to God over the course of just 40 days.
Each re-translated Psalm opens up the resonate life their lines. From celebration to mourning, from simplicity to intricacy, Songs of the Spirit offers to a wide range of believers a way to hold the message and truths of Lent close to heart. No matter whether you've never considered faith before, or know the ins-and-outs of faith like rooms of your very own home, there is a rich vein of life to be found in these Psalms.
Moving through the problems of the world during Week 1, to injustice in Week 2, and then exploring the complexity and scope of creation in Week 3, its beauty in Week 4, pilgrimage and its effects in Week 5, and then holiness and redemption in Weeks 6&7 - this Lent Devotional renews how you approach the world and its maker.
Emotive and beautiful, Songs of the Spirit nourishes the spirit and opens your eyes to the ceaseless wonders of God in all things. A Lent devotional filled with life.

Lent Reflection - Megan Daffern
Posted: Sunday, February 25th
The first week of Lent explores thoughts under the rubric `It's a hard world', inspired mainly by laments. Second, `It's an unjust world', thinks about confession, imaging God as divine judge, with God's righteousness setting right humankind. `It's a big world' challenges the commonplace `it's a small world!', looking to the greatness of God worshipped in psalms as Lord of all. `It's a beautiful world' ends this sequence: with Refreshment Sunday starting the week the tone gets lighter. Sorrow and joy are mixed together in daily life - as in the Psalms, and any spiritual journey.
Passiontide begins: this week considers pilgrimage. We journey deeper towards the eternal God, recalling Jesus' own journey to Jerusalem. Holy Week uses the Jewish Passover sequence of Hallel Psalms, uniting the reader to liturgical traditions. Jesus lies in the tomb, the psalms stop: pause is the reflection.
The final psalms of the Psalter appropriately close this collection, realistically mingling dark notes within the streams of joy. True worship and prayer connects throughout with Christ's own prayer traditions, rippling throughout Lenten, and lived, experience.
