Ashes to Glory: An Easter Devotional takes viewers on a devotional journey from the remembrance of Ash Wednesday to the celebration of Resurrection Sunday. Each day contains a brief devotion (2-3 minutes) that reflects on a treasured song, poem, tradition, Scripture, character of the Passion story, or work of art that enhances the meaning of the season.
A sample of the daily devotional topics: songs including Were You There? and Christ the Lord is Risen Today; poems including Ash Wednesday by Christina Rossetti and O Sacred Head, Now Wounded by Bernard of Clairveaux; traditions and symbols such as lilies, butterflies, the changing date of Easter, new clothing, and Easter parades; works of art including Albrecht Dürer’s Praying Hands and Rembrandt’s Descent from the Cross; and Biblical people and places including Judas Iscariot, Pontius Pilate, Barabbas, Gethsemane, and Golgotha.
Whether the observance of Lent is a yearly custom or a first-time experience, viewers are sure to deepen their faith with the music and message of Ashes to Glory.
