So yesterday was Shrove Tuesday and I was involved in a zoom pancake party at church! Sadly Paul was zooming California teaching chaplaincy so I had to cook them myself – definitely not my skill area!
And today Lent begins. My picture is a jar of ash, ready for me to ash myself in a zoom service. Another new experience, I always get someone else to ash me and I will miss that this year.
But my biggest new experience for this Lent is working with a fantastic group of other freelancers on a Lent Reflection project #LentVoices. Mine will have a bit of a spiritual practices focus.
Have a read and explore some of the exciting things we all get up to outside of this project…
We are a diverse group of Christian freelancers who have collaborated to curate daily reflections during Lent. Each week will have a theme, explored 6 different ways on 6 days.
