Lent is usually about ‘giving stuff up’, isn’t it? What if instead you could add something transformational to the traditional Lenten observance? What if you could give up chocolate and give the money to your favorite charity? What if you could turn the TV off and then spend more
time helping your neighbor? What if Lent became a time of preparation for a lifetime of big-heartedness that reflected God’s amazing generosity?
Well, that’s where 40acts – the generosity challenge from Christian charity Stewardship – comes in. They have created 40acts Together to help people experience a transformational season of Lent. Whether you’re a family, church, small group, school or student, 40acts Together provides you with online and printable resources to guide you through your generous journey as a community.
Here’s what you can do next. Go online to see what is possible at http://www.40acts.org.uk/ Once online you can:
