As many of you know - and do - it is a custom to 'give up' something for Lent in order to focus on spending time with God. It can often be something like a glass of wine, eating chocolate or social media. However, why not think of it as a 'doing' challenge instead. Here are some ideas from our church newsletter:
Fast from words that tear down; Feast on words that build up
Fast from anger; Feast on patience
Fast from worry; Feast on prayer
Fast from complaining; Feast on thanksgiving
Fast from pressure; Feast on peace
Fast from lethargy; Feast on enthusiasm.
….and don’t stop at Easter – it’s just the start!!
