A few days ago I came across a great resource to help frame Lent in an interactive and interesting way. World Vision is hosting a website throughout Lent to bring people together around the challenge and action associated with "Sacrifice". I'm in the process of encourage a local group of folks to also participate in the weekly question, take the weekly challenge and see where the adventure takes them (us)!
Today's challenge was to post something about what sacrifice means or what kind of sacrifice you would like to make for Lent. I've been hard pressed to find something to choose for feeling there are too many options. So I decided to start there.
This sketch is an attempt to let go and open up my hands in order to receive something new from God in the new 40 days of Lent.
I'm still working on my short "practical" answer to what I'm giving up for Lent, but I feel a little lighter for throwing all those possibilities out of my hands - to pray for God to guide me on what to sacrifice this season.
Blessings on your journey - if you want to join in on the local Facebook group click here, if you want to join in on the World Vision site click here, and if you would like to follow here - stay here at my blog and I'll post a weekly update of the challenge and how the group is going!
