How will you live in Lent?

February 28, 2014

Lent is nearly here and there are lots of resources available to help us re-focus on living more simply and generously in the run up to Easter.

Here are three that we’ve come across. Add other ideas and suggestions by commenting on this blog post or by tweeting us @BreatheNetwork.

40acts: do Lent generously

Join Stewardship’s Lent movement and you’ll receive emails which will encourage you to take a daily challenge: “40 nudges in a generous direction, alongside 40 blogs to read and ponder”. Because they reckon generosity works better in community, they’ve come up with some resources that make it easy and fun to sign up with a group. Maybe something for your homegroup/housemates/family to do together?

Lent 40: Lighter

Emails from Brian Draper. He writes:  “Lent 40 is a unique series of 40 short e-mail reflections. Each year, I write a new series day-by-day through Lent. So you get a fresh burst each morning, and you, me and anyone else who’s signed up begins a journey together, sharing wisdom and encouraging each other along the way. We focus on key Lenten themes; we try simple daily actions to put ideas into practice; and we report back through the popular RSVP section. Lent 40 maintains an intimate one-to-one feel – yet the shared wisdom of the group as a whole creates an experience which is far greater than the sum of its parts.”


Tearfund Rhythms encourages you not to give up but to take up during Lent. They write: “We want you to TAKE UP a new thing, we want you to start living a new way; to take up freedom and to come with us as we attempt to pursue freedom in every area of our lives this Lent. Some of the challenges are simple. Some aren’t. But each will help set us free, lead us to find freedom, to find more of the life of fullness that Jesus calls us to.”  Download the actions from their website or follow them on Twitter for a daily tweet.
