Lent Resources from our Seminaries

  • Lenten Sermon Series — “O Love, How Deep, How Broad, How High”
    Concordia Seminary, St. Louis
    Designed to aid pastors in their preparations for Lenten midweek services. Dr. Thomas Egger, Concordia Seminary’s Gustav and Sophie Butterbach Professor of Exegetical Theology and chairman of the Department of Exegetical Theology, authored the materials.
  • Lenten Devotional — Saints of the Passion
    Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, Ind.
    The Augsburg Confession says, “the memory of saints may be set before us, that we may follow their faith and good works” (AC XXI). This devotion is organized by the CTSFW students to do exactly that by following two saints each week through these next 40 days of Lent. Each week’s lesson will be about two saints of the passion—those who, in some way, participated in the passion of our Lord.

 

Lent Resources from Lutheran Hour Ministries

  • The Marks of Love — Lenten Devotions
    Following the narrative of Mark’s Gospel, The Marks of Love explores the life and ministry of Jesus. The tragedy of Golgotha is met with the triumph of the resurrection on Easter morning. Along the way, we learn of Jesus’ deep compassion for those He loved and served, including those who put Him to death.

The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod Inc., including Mission Central (in Mapleton, Iowa), is an IRS registered 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity.

A contribution designated (restricted) for a specific purpose, when accepted, will be used only to fund expenses related to that purpose. Occasionally, we may receive more in contributions for a particular purpose than can be wisely applied to it in the foreseeable future or the purpose may cease to be feasible. In these situations, the LCMS will make reasonable attempts to contact contributors to apply their contribution toward another aspect of ministry that aligns closely the contributor’s goals and values. If a contributor cannot be contacted, the LCMS will use the gift to meet a similar pressing need that most closely matches the contributor's original intent.

Consistent with Synod Board policy and in recognition of a more challenging economic and philanthropic/fundraising environment due to inflationary pressure, not more than 12.5 percent of any charitable contribution will be allocated to administering gifts and communicating with contributors (compared to a not-more-than ceiling of 10.5 percent the previous fiscal year). Contributions received and accepted by the LCMS are deemed to be in agreement with this statement.
