(BIRMINGHAM, Ala.) – Journey to the Cross, a Lenten devotional series, returns to Passport, Inc.’s devotional website d365.org Ash Wednesday, February 18, 2015, and runs through the first week of Easter.
This series features scripture, prayer, and meditative thoughts accompanied by music. This year’s ecumenical team of writers includes: Emily Miller, Stephen Mazingo, David Haun, Becky Ullom Naugle, Ben Acton, Jane Hartwell, Wade Griffith, and Tracy Hartman. The weekly themes invite each reader to examine his or her own faith journey and draw near to the story of Jesus’ suffering, death, and resurrection. World renowned composer Mark Hayes has recorded an album of original hymn arrangements for Journey to the Cross, entitled Wondrous Love. These songs serve as familiar musical reflections, providing a backdrop that accompanies the daily devotional.
Journey to the Cross is part of the year-round devotional site, d365.org, a ministry of Passport, Inc., and sponsored ecumenically by Passport, Inc., Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, Presbyterian Mission Agency, and The Episcopal Church. d365.org hosts daily devotionals and three seasonal series for Lent, Advent, and the beginning of the school year, as well as nearly two million visitors annually. Daily devotionals are available on the web, and through the free iOS app.
