Lenten Reflection: Week 3

We’ve made our way through a big part of the lenten season. At this point, many of us may have slipped on the practices we promised to do, or stop doing, this lenten season. We tend to be people that make mistakes, but that doesn’t mean we can’t keep working hard to spend time with God this season. Nadia- Bolz-Weber made a list of things we can do to “Keep Lent Holy.” If you’re feeling disappointed that you haven’t made enough time for God during lent, take a look at this list. Pick a thing, or two, that you can do this week to keep lent holy.

Pray for your enemies

Give $ to a non-profit of your choosing

Take 10 minutes of silence today

Look out the window until you find something of beauty you had not noticed before

Give 5 items of clothing to Goodwill

Do someone else’s chore

Read Psalm 139

Read Psalm 121

Pay a few sincere compliments

Tell someone what you are grateful for

Light an actual candle

Write a thank you note to your favorite teacher

Donate art supplies to your local elementary school

Pray for peace
