Spring is Coming: Lent Customizable Short Films and Printable Resources
With the beginning of Lent just five weeks away, now is the perfect time to spice up your congregation’s plans for evangelism, engagement, and spiritual formation. This mysterious time of year (when the days lengthen, the earth warms, and death gives way to life!) is perfect for inviting new folks to worship, and at the same time deepening your community’s connection with the season.
Here’s a quick overview of SALT's Customizable Short Films and Printable Resources for your church's Lenten planning pleasure:
SALT's latest Customizable Short Film frames the season of Lent as a time of longing and making ourselves ready for God’s masterpiece of resurrection, amazement, and joy to overwhelm the world. Pair it with SALT’s new Lenten downloadable devotional, “Mary Oliver and the Poetry of Lent” and/or our "Lent Mary Oliver Collection" clip art for bulletins and screens (the same art that appears in both the film and the devotional). Combine these resources and - voila! - you’ve got yourself an affordable, aesthetically gorgeous, holistic approach to the Lenten season.
This lovely, earthy, and free-range Customizable Short Film presents Lent as a time of creativity and reconnecting with the natural world. Featuring a fresh twist on the time-honored tradition of dying Easter eggs, this film lifts up the technicolored beauty of God’s promises, God's resurrection, and all God’s creatures, great and small.
Our classic Customizable Short Film on Lent as 40 days of walking together through the great mysteries of faith: creation, redemption, and the sweet renewal of the Holy Spirit. This one’s blooming with radiant theological ideas, as accessible and evocative as one, two, three!
Finally, this Customizable Short Film emphasizes how the 40 days of Lent can function as a life-changing invitation to fasting and feasting, to confession and praise, and ultimately to a community journeying together in love and hope. Inspiring, whimsical, and poignant photographs and portraits punctuate the key message: you are invited!
Well, there you have it - a one-stop overview of some of the resources available from SALT for Lent and Easter. Order today, and make this Lenten season more vibrant, engaged, and theologically rich than ever!
