Reverse Lent

There’s a new way to do Lent, not give something up but add something new. I heard about it from Karen Ehman of Proverbs 31 ministries.

I had decided this year to add a new morning and evening prayer for the 40 days of Lent and then I heard of Karen Ehman’s idea of Reverse Lent.

Ehman suggests doing one of five things:

1.       Writing a note each day to tell someone thank you or share a memory.

2.      Call someone each day to tell him or her you’re glad he or she is in your life.

3.      Do something to lighten someone else’s load. Help a family member, friend or coworker by doing a chore that is usually theirs.

4.      Help a stranger.

5.      Serve someone who usually serves you, like the postman, a teacher or pastor.

I think it’s a great idea! Everyone is talking about what they’re giving up and I absolutely love this idea of adding something to recognize and help others.

And it’s not too late to give it a try! God Bless.
