This book offers busy pastors a complete package of thematically related resources for Lenten preaching and worship. With services for each week in Lent plus Ash Wednesday and Maundy Thursday, as well as a Good Friday tenebrae service, Voices Of Repentance provides everything needed to create compelling worship throughout the Lenten season, either for a midweek series or for regular Sunday services. Each week's resources feature a monologue sermon that tells the story of someone who sought redemption in the baptismal waters of the Jordan. These spiritual contemplations view the events leading up to Jesus' crucifixion from a unique perspective---that of everyday people who lived through them. Each service also includes a children's object lesson and a convenient order of worship.
Monologues feature these characters:
John the Baptist
a well-dressed man
a well-fed woman
a tax collector
a Roman soldier
