Six-Week Devotional Journal Coming from Warner Press
The six weeks before Easter are an ideal time to renew our Christian discipleship practices. In early February, Warner Press will release A Devotional Journal for Daily Spiritual Apps to guide Christians in this Easter season tradition.
The forty-eight-page Devotional Journal takes us through Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount (Matt 5–7) in the six weeks from Ash Wednesday to Maundy Thursday. Along the way, we hear again what Jesus said about the essential Christian habits of prayer, Bible study, giving, fasting, and caring for God’s creation.
Handel Smith, chief domestic officer for Church of God Ministries (CGM), encourages congregations to use this resource in place of CGM’s Focus 40 emphasis of years past. “We call these ‘daily spiritual apps’ because we grow more mature spiritually as we apply ourselves to these practices each day,” he says. “Each day’s journal section allows us to keep track of our progress.”
A free leader’s guide gives step-by-step instructions for leading an intergenerational small group to learn these “apps” together. This guide and a free subscription to a daily RSS feed of these devotional “apps” are available online at www.dailyspiritualapps.org.
For those who prefer to use a written journal, the printed Devotional Journal is available for $3 plus shipping and handling, with discounts on orders of six copies or more. Visit www.warnerpress.org for details.
