Encouraging Lenten generosity
It has a simple name that isn’t easy to forget: ”Love Life Live Lent.”
It’s a new way of marking Lent.
“Instead of giving up chocolate or going on a detox, it encourages people to undertake a simple act of generosity each day. The actions are small and fun to do, but make a real difference in homes, families and communities,” the Love Life Live Lent Web site says.
The initiative began in Birmingham in 2006. A colleague of mine found out about it on the Church of England’s Web site. She was looking for some fresh ideas to mark Lent this year.
She got on the Love Life Live Lent site at www.livelent.net and signed up for a Twitter alert to get suggestions for simple acts of generosity that she can do each day.
Check out the Love Life Live Lent site for suggested Lenten season family activities, recipes, prayers and Lent and Easter facts.
