Lent Quotable

One would give generous alms if one had the eyes to see the beauty of a cupped receiving hand.
— Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

DIGITAL FAST! Consciously reduce your use of an electronic device (cell phone, internet etc.) today by 25%.

Pray for people who don’t have access to electricity and other technologies that makes our lives easier. (1.6 billion people have no access to electricity. Approximately 400 million depend on kerosene for lighting, putting almost six million tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere each year.)

Give the time you don’t spend using your electronic device today to talk with someone who’s important and special in your life, and add $1 to your FastPrayGive Bowl. (Your FastPrayGive Bowl is a container you’ve 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.
