Denver, CO (PRWEB) January 27, 2014
In preparation for Lent, the ministry team at Renovaré is pleased to release their 2014 devotional Engage: a Lenten Guide for Spiritual Growth. While the popular image of Lent focuses on what an individual "gives up," Engage will major on the ways we can be enriched by participating in the season. Author Kai Nilsen will reveal what role the classic spiritual disciplines play in that process.
Renovaré's Executive Director Rachel Quan says, "Lent has always been a blessing, but Kai's devotional will help people live that blessing out. He shows that Lent is not only a time for contemplation and confession, but it is also a time to act. I recommend Engage: a Lenten Guide to Spiritual Growth to anyone who wants to grow in the 'with- God life' during Lent this year."
Nilsen, a Lutheran pastor as well as a member of Renovaré's Board of Trustees, wrote Engage to encourage Lenten devotion in all aspects of life. The disciplines of submission, worship, study, service, celebration, and community provide concrete actions the reader can take in order to experience true Spiritual Formation. Each week's devotions bring a new topic, complete with fresh challenges.
The study is best experienced with a group. Small group studies and Sunday School classes provide good settings for the book, but they can also be used by individuals.
