The Poetry of Lent
The Poetry of Lent
The 40 days of Lent are a time of longing for justice and peace and poetry to overwhelm the world, and at the same time a season of making ourselves ready for God’s masterpiece of resurrection, amazement, and joy. Featuring beautiful language from both Scripture and Mary Oliver, this Customizable Short Film will extend your congregation’s hand this Lent to new and old friends, warmly inviting them to come along on the journey to the cross - and to the joy of Easter morning.
Custom-tailored with your church name and worship times, “The Poetry of Lent” is perfect for church websites and social media platforms alike: it’s the kind of invitation people in your community will love to receive, and just as important, it’s the kind of invitation they’ll love to share with others.
What's more, when you purchase this Customizable Short Film, you will also receive SALT’s Lent Mary Oliver Collection of Clip Art at no additional charge. This collection includes 1) a scriptural passage and 2) an excerpt from one of Oliver's poems for each of these Lenten milestones: Ash Wednesday, the Sundays in Lent, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Sunday. Perfect for bulletins, worship screens, social media posts, and with the same art that appears in both the film and printable devotional, this collection will give your church a seamlessly integrated approach to the Lenten season.
“The Poetry of Lent” stands alone as a visual invitation - but it can also be paired with SALT’s new Lenten Devotional, “Mary Oliver and the Poetry of Lent.”
For customizable short films, SALT works on a “sliding scale” model: $175 for churches with up to 100 members; $275 for churches with 100-500 members; and $375 for churches with more than 500 members.
Once your order has been placed, within 7-10 business days you will receive a Dropbox link to download your film and a folder of stills from the shoot (perfect for your website, newsletters, and promotion on social media!).
