Lent is coming.
Lent, the season of the Christian year that leads to Easter, is a time of preparation. It is a time of simple living, prayer, and fasting – a time to practice spiritual disciplines.
Some people add prayer, scripture reading, and meditation to their lives. Some choose to give up something. In different ways, people make the journey to the week when Christians remember the arrest, torture, execution and resurrection of Jesus.
This year, I plan to join in the Lenten photo-a-day challenge posed by Rethink Church and by Rethink PC(USA). Here are the details:
Whatever your practices this season, will you join this photo-a-day challenge and share with the community how you perceive each word or phrase for the day? No explanation needed, unless you want to. After all, a picture is worth a thousand words. Tag your photos on instagram with @rethinkchurch or on twitter with #rethinkchurch and #40days.
You don’t have to be a great photographer. This project is hopefully more about the practice of paying attention and being intentional, than it is being the best photographer [though we encourage you to get creative!]. If you don’t have instagram or twitter, we’d still love for you to share your photos. Just share them on your facebook page and tag us, or post them on our facebook wall.
Rethink Church provides a list of words related to the Lenten journey.
I will post here and will tweet the posts at @wmkoenig using the hashtags #rethinkpcusa and #40days.
This amount of discipline will present a challenge to me. I guess that explains its name.
See how I do – along the Trail.
