Fasting


Welcome to Lent. Not perhaps the mosr expected greeting for a season of fasting and seriousness. However, Lent can be very rewarding and energising so it is welcome to me.
Traditionally it’s a time for fasting and the usual options are booze and chocolate. Nothing wrong with that but if you are searching for a different challenge this year how about some of these play-related fasts:

Newspapers or magazines
Social media
Gaming
Listening to music via your phonevor iPod or only listening to explicitly Christian music
Wearing jewellery or make-up

The giving up isn’t really the important thing, it’s the space that makes for God.

I pray you will have a rewarding Lent.
