A season for prayer, simplicity and generosity
Right now, it feels like our world has never needed it more.
22 February - 6 April 2023
It’s hard not to spend time dwelling on the state of our world today. Escalating conflicts, rising poverty and hunger, floods, fires, environmental and economic uncertainty, a global pandemic lingers on...
So many crises pull our attention in endless directions. We want to help, but where do we even begin? Can any of us make a real difference?
Lent is coming. A 40-day season to walk in the footsteps of Jesus, seeking to practice a life focused on simplicity, generosity and prayer. It’s a precious opportunity to step back a little, choosing to carve out intentional time to pray more regularly, live more simply and refocus on what we can do to love our neighbours and make a difference to a hurting world.
