How Can You Observe Lent This Year?
Have you noticed the bulletin board across from Erika’s office? Take a few moments and check it out! During Lent this year, we are asking you to consider observing Lent in some way. Traditionally, you can do this through prayer, fasting and almsgiving. Here are some modern ways to make this happen. Prayer
– start a prayer journal, pray for a different person each day, go to Centering Prayer on Wednesdays at 5:30 in the Sanctuary. Fasting
– give up social media, give up gossiping/negative attitude, give up a modern convenience. Almsgiving
– skip buying lunch/coffee out and give that money to your favorite charity, donate 10% of your time each week to a local charity, send mail to soldiers, shut-ins and others who need cards of hope and encouragement.
If you decide to observe Lent this year, tell us about it! Take a card next to the bulletin board, write down your plan and pin it to the “wooden” cross on the board. Let’s see how many cards we can get displayed. It is up to you if you want to do this anonymously. Let’s make this journey to Easter together and deepen our walk with Christ! Kay Trafton
