Keep a True Lent: An Absolute Living Series

Program Overview

Keep a True Lent is a series hosted by Ellen Debenport and Laura Shepard, cohosts of the archived program Absolute Living: Putting Principles Into Action. In this series, they explore Charles Fillmore's Keep a True Lent, which includes 47 powerful, thought-provoking lessons and affirmations for the Lenten season as well as a collection of classic Fillmore writings.

"Every follower of Jesus who would keep Lent in the true Christian spirit follows the way of prayer and fasting that He taught His disciples. He revealed that prayer and fasting are the sure way to spiritual power, the way to keep the soul cleansed and purified that it may feel the presence of God. When the disciples were unable to heal the epileptic boy He told them that they lacked faith, that such healings could only be brought about by prayer and fasting." ~ Keep a True Lent
