Lent Quotable

The setting sun is reflected from the windows of the alms-house as brightly as from the rich man’s abode.
— Henry David Thoreau

Fast from a treat.

Pray for those whose basic sustenance is not being met, around the world or in your town. (The World Health Organization estimates that one third of the world is well fed, one third is underfed and one third is starving. Every 3.6 seconds, someone on our planet dies of hunger.)

Give the money you save in your FastPrayGive Bowl. (Your FastPrayGive Bowl is a container you set aside to hold the money saved from various fasting challenges to be used for whatever charity you choose at the end of Lent.)

Slipped up? Don’t give up. Start again and share your
struggles at our “Slip Support Station” on Facebook.
