This Lent the Presbyterian Hunger Program invites you to share with us (and, through this blog, the wider church) your ideas and practices related to simple living, responsible consumerism and spiritual growth during the season of Lent.
Historically Lent has meant giving something up, but for many in the church today, it also means taking something on, such as a spiritual discipline or lifestyle practice, as a way of deepening faith and journeying the Lenten path.
We would love to hear and share with the church your ideas and reflections on meaningful and creative Lenten lifestyle practices. Please send to firstname.lastname@example.org:
- A description of your idea or practice (in a paragraph or less)
- Your name and the name of your congregation
- Your town and state and a phone number where we may contact you
In addition to being posted online for other Lenten seekers to consider, entries will be considered for inclusion in the upcoming publication Lenten Living - the next edition in the Just Living series. In this way we hope to foster an exchange of ideas in the PC(USA) regarding deeper Lenten discipleship through simple living, responsible consumption and spiritual growth.
So, what makes Lent meaningful for you? What lifestyle practices or spiritual disciplines do you and your loved ones engage in that bring depth and meaning to your observance of this most sacred season?
