One of my favorite blogs simply bears the title of its author: Rachel Held Evans. You can learn more about Rachel here. Have you ever tried
- making a Thorn Wreath, a Way of Light Wreath, or an Easter Tree?
- giving up all drinks except water and donating the money saved to an organization providing clean and accessible water in a place far from your home?
- spending 10-20 every day OUTSIDE in prayer and meditation?
- walking barefoot (as much as possible) for the 40 days of Lent?
You’ll find elaborations on all of these ideas, book recommendations, and prayers in Rachel’s 2013 version of 40 Ideas for Lent. Here is her introduction to the Ideas:
As has become a tradition here on the blog, I’ve compiled a list of 40 ideas that I hope will help you make the most of this season of reflection, penitence, and preparation. […] Thank you so much for your input and ideas! They made this year’s list one of the best.
