We’d love to suggest a new book by one of our youth workers as a Lent resource for your young people or youth fellowship group.
Paul Martin, the Youth Pastor in Magheralin Parish, has recently published a 40–day devotional called ‘Psalm 34 – A Recipe for Faith’.
It’s the third book in his ‘Inspire’ series and explores issues of worry, anxiety and fear from the perspective of David who is on the run from the King and his army.
With anxiety and other mental health issues on the rise among young people, this is an ideal resource for discovering how the Bible can help to lead us out of destructive thinking and into a place of faith.
“Psalm 34 will be an incredible encouragement to you as you find your way through the ups and downs of life. It’s in the busyness of everyday life that God wants to talk to us; where we’re battling fear or when life is stretching us beyond our ability to cope.
“This devotional is written so that you will discover a fresh connection with Father God. By digging deep into His words we are going to be inspired with God’s perspective on those negative fears that don’t do us any good. He wants to lead us into a place of faith, so that we will know what to do when fear comes knocking.”
Lent 2019 runs from Ash Wednesday 6 March–Saturday 20 April
