"Six Weeks of Lent"

Six suggestions for the six weeks of Lent:

First week:    Text, email or write a note to a friend and tell that person how much you appreciate their friendship.
Second week:   Call two people daily that you have not contacted recently to catch up, say thank you
   or I’m sorry.
Third week:   Take a gift you have made or bought to a friend to whom you need to express your love.  Make it simple – a plant, a book, a pie, an apron – a tangible expression of your love.
Fourth week:  Make a list of five people for whom you will pray daily.  Include family, friends, and critics.  If they have wronged you – forgive them, and ask forgiveness if you have wronged them.
Fifth week:     Recall Christ’s suffering and pray that you might be more Christ-like in your attitudes and practices.
Sixth week:    Jesus said, “I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.”  John 10:10  It is time for a celebration.  In Jesus Christ, we are practitioners of hope.  Share the joy of new life in Christ.
