LENT

Jacky's Blog:

 

Lent is a special time in the Christian calendar for reflection.  Some people choose to give something up to make space for this.  Personally I follow '40acts' from the stewardship fund. Every day they send me a reflective thought and a choice of things to do to demonstrate Gods love. Often too there is a short video to watch. Below is a bit of the reflective thought for day 2  to give you an idea. If you want to follow it too sign up at: http://www.40acts.org.uk/ .

 

It had been years since I’d seen one of these:  Like a near-extinct bird, the lesser-spotted Christian bumper sticker caught my eye last summer.  It was old and peeling around the edges, but the ‘This is not my home, I’m just passing through’ sticker was still intact.  Some of us have been thinking about creation and the planet so long we have forgotten that there are those who still believe that planet earth is only a stopgap before the main performance on the stage of heaven. 

Genesis 2:15 makes clear that from the start we were made to "work, dress and care for creation".  So the plan was never that the bumper sticker would be true. .....

 

.......Where is your Garden of Eden?  What are your Eden streets called? Eden scrub ground and Eden car parks? We each have a Garden of Eden to love, treasure, clean, restore, dress, preserve and bring justice for.  So, let’s not wait for someone else to do our job; let’s get involved and live up to the first challenge in the Bible.
