40 for 40

A Lenten Challenge

My wife wrote this article to raise awareness about global resource consumption, and to challenge us to take the Lenten season to focus on personal lifestyle changes as a way to take action in light of our new understanding. As stewards of resources and our lives, we have opportunities every day to make decisions based on conservation instead of exploitation, in other words to choose to see this world as holy and deserving of reverence and respect instead of merely fuel for our caprice.

Lent provides us a context of sacramental devotion in which we can consecrate a part of our lives to bringing us closer to God's transformative vision of the world. Read the article and consider covenanting with others dedicated to making a change in their lifestyles as an act of worship and as an act of faith in the possibility of a new world. (And who knows, you may even like the change!)

Can we find 40 people willing to challenge themselves for 40 days?
