Christians often use the season of Lent to focus on the basics. Some of us practice denial of certain luxuries and others practice the addition of spiritual disciplines. The point is to use these 40 days for intentional focus on the broken places in the world around us. We confess when we have been complicit and admit when we have been negligent. We accept the truth of God’s reconciling love, which then propels us into lives of gratitude and generosity—positive change.
To that end, we offer this Lenten calendar inclusive of six focus areas currently at the forefront of the Council’s work. Each week frames the specific initiative through the lens of faith and offers movement from awareness to action. During this season of Lent we invite you to join us as we continue to live into God’s promise of a flourishing creation.
