A Journey to the Cross: 40 Days in the Footsteps of Jesus

A Journey to the Cross: 40 Days in the Footsteps of Jesus


Easter is right around the corner. In fact, for everyone who observes the Lenten season, it starts next Wednesday, February 26!

Lent is a period of 40 days – beginning on Ash Wednesday and ending on the Thursday before Easter; 40 days (minus the Sundays). Many people fast, read Scripture, and pray – along with other spiritual activities –
in remembrance of the 40 days Jesus spent fasting and praying in the desert as he began his ministry.

Even if you don’t observe this tradition, it’s a great opportunity to draw closer to God and prepare your hearts for Easter.

This year, we’ve created a series to help you do just that! 

Every Monday, beginning February 24, our latest post will come right to your inbox along with special weekly bible readings that include simple reflections for meditation, journaling, or discussion. We’ll even include some ideas and activities to help make this 40 days more meaningful. 

Each week, we’ll focus on a major event in Jesus’ life from the days leading up to the cross and His hope-filled resurrection. 

So get ready to trek through Jerusalem’s dusty streets, courtyards, gardens, upper rooms,  hillsides, and more, together!
