Stay tuned! Busted Halo’s® FAST PRAY GIVE Lent Calendar will be back in early February in time for Lent 2015. In the meantime, you can share bustedhalo.com/lent far and wide — that’s where you’ll find our Lent Calendar and links to new digital ways to connect with the season of Lent this year. For now — here’s last year’s calendar to give you a taste of what’s in store.
Traditionally, Lent was a time for personal conversion leading up to Easter, during which Christians practiced the spiritual disciplines of fasting, praying and almsgiving to strip away all that is unnecessary and become more mindful of their ultimate dependence on God. Let’s recapture the true meaning of Lent in ways that are actually relevant to your life. Each day throughout Lent, starting on Ash Wednesday, the calendar’s link for that day will become active, revealing a Daily Jolt for spiritual contemplation relating to Lent, and new and practical ideas for fasting, prayer and almsgiving.
This year you can enter our Lent Contest EVERY DAY and be placed in a random drawing to win the contest’s grand prize — an iPad Air! An added bonus: If you share the contest with your friends through Facebook, and they enter the contest, you receive more chances to win. The 16 GB iPad Air Grand Prize will be awarded after Easter in a random drawing from all eligible entries. See the contest rules here.
Busted Halo’s® Fast Pray Give Calendar is completely unflunkable, entirely relevant and totally inspiring. The idea isn’t to be perfect but to continue on our path, so if you slip up one day, don’t give up; simply begin again the next day. We hope you’ll join Busted Halo this year with our Fast Pray Give Lent calendar.
