Welcome to Lent 2021: 40 Days of World Changers

Dear families,

Welcome to the season of Lent—40 days of prayer and preparation leading up to Jesus’ crucifixion, and resurrection. While many choose to give up tangible things for Lent, such as junk food or social media, we are inviting our children, youth and families instead to give in—to possibility, potential and hope. Each day during Lent (at 4pm) we will be sharing with you a brief story about a young person (or group of people) who have made their mark on the world in a positive way. This story will be followed by a question, designed to spark conversation with your family, and a prayer, to close your time together. Whether you can do each day as a family, or only pop on occasionally over the next 6 weeks is up to you, but either way, we hope that these inspiring young people give you ideas for the ways you can change the world, and help you give in to wonder and joy.
