The six-week Lenten journey is an opportunity to take on a new spiritual discipline. This year, congregations are invited to pray with Scripture as a way of discerning God’s movement in our personal lives and in the life of the world around us.

The practices of fasting and feasting are ancient expressions of lament and celebration. The festivals and seasons of the Christian year provide rhythms of fasting and feasting centered on the life of Christ and the events of salvation history. The discipline of self-offering is a grateful response to God’s love for the world and self-giving in Jesus Christ. As Christians we are called to lives of simplicity, generosity, hospitality, compassion, and care for creation. We are accountable to God for how we use our material goods, spiritual gifts, and time in God’s service. (Book of Order W-5.0103, p.110)
Wednesday, February 17th, 2021 is Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. Part of the discipline observed during those 40 days leading up to Easter is focused on reflection, selflessness, and simplicity. Here is a challenge for you! Each day of Lent, remove one item from your closet or cabinets that you no longer wear or use or need, and place it in a trash bag. At the end of the 40 days, donate these items to a place that can share them with someone who can really use them! Remember, if the item is stained, torn, or broken, no one else would want it either!
SUPER CHALLENGE If you really want to simplify your life & declutter your home:
