On Wild Hope: Stories for Lent from the Vanishing

**UPDATE 4/11/20 — After writing this post I decided the Wild Hope book is not very kid-friendly. The stories are not very hopeful and longer than the All Creation Waits book (which I still love).

Wild Hope is a guided devotional for Lent by Gayle Boss. As a family we have been going through Gayle Boss’s All Creation Waits for three years now during Advent, and I am excited to read through Wild Hope this year for Lent. All Creation Waits is themed on animals’ adaptations to winter; Wild Hope is themed on endangered species.

So why focus on endangered species for Lent?

“The purpose of Lent has always been to startle us awake to the true state of our hearts and the world we’ve made. Which wakes an aching, wild hope that something new might be born of the ruin. The promise of Lent is that something will be born of the ruin… Lent is seeded with resurrection.” (Gayle Boss, Wild Hope)

We open our hearts and souls up to the animals who suffer, the “least of these” and feel their suffering as our own.
