Forty Days and Forty Nights - A Lenten Ark Moving Toward Easter
Lenten ark counting down towards Easter.
Art by Judy Jarrett, book by Peter
and adults can count down the days of Lent aboard an ark with the Noah family
and all the animals. Similar to an Advent calendar, this unique, colourful,
sturdy construction has windows and doors for each day of Lent and for the
Easter celebration. Open one window each day to find scripture stories that
support the values of Lent.
The ark sits on stormy seas. When
assembled, each side is a little less than a cubit high and a cubit wide. The
story of the great flood ‘forty days and forty nights’ is itself one of the
central Lenten stories.
A booklet is included with each ark
and provides scripture readings, information, and prayer for each day of Lent.
