NYD Webteam: February 2018
So we're nearly half way through the first day of Lent. You may have decided to give up something for the weeks leading up to Easter. You may have decided to do nothing. You could still undertake this challenge; '40 Acts'. This is what the 40 Acts website tells us:
"40acts is the generosity challenge for Lent, created by UK Christian charity, 'Stewardship'. For seven years, 40acts has asked a question: what if Lent could be about more than just giving stuff up? What if it could be a time of radical generosity as well as spiritual discipline?"
For each day of Lent, except Sundays, you are challenged to do something generous for someone else. You do not need to join up to do the daily generosity challenge; I found the first one on 'facebook' this morning. However, if you do you will see that many resources become available to assist you with your challenge.
The website goes on to say "Over the years, 40acts has become a movement of over 100,000 people on a mission to impact their communities with generosity — during Lent and beyond."
Why not impact your community with generosity over Lent?
