A new Lenten resource is now available:

 “Not Counting Sundays – A Lenten Journey of 40 Days”. 

This book by ELCIC Pastor David Keiser is recommended by the ELCIC worship committee and is available in PDF form.

David Kaiser who is a retired ELCIC pastor began to write poems for each day in Lent while working at the Lutheran Seminary in Hong Kong in 2002. A few years later, he asked Frank Armistead, also an ELCIC pastor and an artist to create illustrations. This book combines Frank’s artwork and David’s poetry in a meditative journey through the 40 days of Lent, reflecting the 40-year journey of the Israelites through the wilderness. It is a rather unique resource for the Lenten season that is approaching in a couple of weeks.

While the book is for sale, David would like as many people as possible to have access to it. When you open the book in a PDF reader such as Adobe Acrobat, it will display best if you set the View -> ‘Page View’ to ‘Two-Page View’ and turn on ‘Show Cover Page in Two-Page View’.

Printed copies are available for reduced cost by sending an email to
