Follow the Lent 2012 Consumer Detox

February 21, 2012

As soon as Consumer Detox was released, people mentioned the possibility of a Lent Detox, so this year I’ve decided to give it a go.

Starting tomorrow I’ll be blogging daily through Lent at this site. I’ll be sharing some of the challenges and successes of trying to live more simply, and expanding on material in the book. A few friends are working through the book over Lent, and this should be a great accompaniment. But I also wanted to make something available for those who don’t have access to the book.

There are also some notes for small groups to use, including some of the most challenging / unorthodox things I’ve proposed for groups to try together. The idea of making a full inventory of what you own, for instance, came from a discussion with the guys at Nomad last year. Crazily, in our society, we barely have enough time to keep stock of the things we own. I hope that, if anything, an exercise like this gives us cause to be more thankful. But then if we could give our list to someone else to pray over (see the notes for more details), just think what might happen…

Enjoy Lent, and may it lead to deeper transformation in all of us.
