Many of us have given up quite a lot over the last year so perhaps this Lent we could try practising some other "disciplines".  The attached "Let's Live Lent" calendar caught my eye.  I love the idea of having a different theme for each day of the week and some suggestions of activities linked to that theme.  it takes us all the way from Ash Wednesday (17th February) to Easter Day (4th April).  You could take up the challenge on your own, join in with a group on social media or do this as a family. We've got a Facebook group "Let's Live Lent 2021" which you can search for and ask to join and I hope we'll encourage each other as we journey through Lent.

You can also choose to join a Lent group.  Across the local C of E churches we are using #LiveLent God's Story Our Story and reading Living His Story by Hannah Steele (more details in the article on Lent groups).  Our regular Thursday evening homegroup is going to be following a course on care for creation in the York Courses series.
