Since the beginning of Advent, I’ve been hearing the same questions:
Will there be a Lent study?
Have you thought about doing Lent?
Will we have Lent Illustrated?
I am happy to share, after weeks of reflection and preparation, that there will be a Lent Illustrated this year. While I am still smoothing out the kinks and writing the reflections for each week, I can tell you a little about it so far.
Thank you so much for joining the Seasons Illustrated community in our four-week study on Esther. While this journey is by no means all-inclusive or encompassing, I hope journaling through Esther helped you form a personal connection with and understanding of this beautiful and complicated book. Before we depart, I want to leave you with one final thought.
Welcome to our fourth and final week of Esther. Now that the climax of Esther has passed, we focus on the resolution and the final lessons we can learn from this book.

Welcome to week three of Esther Illustrated! In the past two weeks, we have reflected on the two queens and two schemes of the early chapters of Esther. Today, we reflect on the two banquets, as we reach the climax of the story.
