Are you looking at life differently for Lent ? Or are you giving up the usual things (chocolate, alcohol), or perhaps thinking about it in a different way since the outbreak of covid…. Doing something extra whether for others or our community, can be just as good as giving something up. It can be a way of reconnecting us with the things that should matter most, by ‘re focusing our lives’.

God certainly keeps us on our toes; but it is how we react and how deeply we believe in him that makes us who we are…As we prepare for what is to come (Easter); let us remember

'God’s love surrounds us always’.
