A few suggestions to supplement your Lent and Easter reading.   

Say Yes to Life by Ruth Valerio The Archbishop Of Canterbury’s Lent Book

Lift your focus from natural, everyday concerns, to issues that are having an impact on millions of lives around the world. We are made in the image of God, entrusted to look after what He has created, to share in God’s joy and ingenuity in making a difference for good. Ruth imaginatively draws on creation, (Genesis 1), and relates themes of light, water, land, the seasons, creatures, humankind, Sabbath rest and resurrection hope, to matters of environment, ethical and social concerns. Voices from around the world are heard throughout, and each chapter ends with discussion questions and a prayer to encourage us to respond.
