«During Lent, perhaps all of us should spend time in the penitentiary of the spirit while we do some deep soul-searching. We examine our personal sinfulness in hopes of turning away from temptation, and turning toward God's will. Lent can be likened to spiritual rehab. It is a time for us to take stock of our lives, and to get with God's program--one day at a time.»
In this Daybreaks for Lent and Easter, Valerie Schultz focuses scripture selections, reflection, and prayers centering around forgiveness and redemption drawn from her ministry as a prison chaplain. With these meditations, Schultz walks the reader through steps that challenge the spirit, bringing forgiveness and discovery of the true meaning of salvation.
