The question to begin with is, “have you eaten all the yummy things in your house since Christmas?” Why? Because it’s time for Lent!
Lent is a great time of the year, don’t be mistaken for thinking it is simply all about giving up your favourite tasty treats – chocolate, sweets, alcohol, coffee, fizzy drinks. Lent is based on the time when Jesus was in the desert, being tempted, this is why we give up things that tempt us. However there is more to Jesus in the desert than temptation, it was the time before Jesus began his ministry; it was the time he withdrew and spent time with God.
My challenge for you all this Lent is to spend time with God, to help make this happen; you will be receiving a creative worship journal. This contains activities, thoughts and passages for you all to spend time with God. You might be tempted to say you don’t have time, or be distracted by circumstances of life, however, using the Lent journals (or any helpful resource, will bring you all closer to God, and together as a family. Are you ready for the challenge?
Enjoy, and keep us posted on how you get on.
