What is our lenten project?

The idea for our lenten project came to me at 4 one morning as I was breastfeeding my baby. I don't really know much about lent as it has never been a part of my Christian tradition, but the idea of it intrigues me.

Confession time: I don't read my bible regularly and my prayers are usually 'help!' So I thought that was a good place to start.

So, my lenten project is to read a passage of the bible each day, write a reflection and a prayer and publish them on this blog.

I shared my idea with Mike and he said "I'm jealous I didn't think of it first", so I invited him to join me. He can't commit to a daily post so will try for once or twice a week. As we talked about it we decided to extend the invitation to our friends and family and make it a community project!

So please, join us this lent. You might want to do the same as us or you might have something else in mind - perhaps you'll do a traditional fast.

Daily blogging is not necessary, your lenten project might be just to blog about your experiences once a week or perhaps only once during the 40 day period. It's up to you.

My prayer is that we'll uncover a little bit more of the mystery that is our God and his people this lent.
