3 Things to take up in Lent

Lent starts in a week’s time, and for many this is an opportunity to give up something: chocolate, fizzy drinks, Facebook.

Over the years I’ve given up Diet Coke and Facebook (my phone broke on the first day so I had no form of contact at all for a few days, I’m sure there’s a lesson in that) and once when I was younger, tea. A commitment my colleagues and husband probably don’t want me to repeat anytime soon.

But for others, Lent offers an opportunity to take something up and form new habits. If you’re looking to develop spiritually and undertake new disciples without feeling deprived, then take a look at our list of things you might want to take up.

Q&A 5 Year Bible Verse Journal

Reflecting 

It can be difficult to find time to just sit and reflect upon the day; to look back, give thanks and pinpoint all that God has done.

The Q&A 5-year journal offers short bursts of opportunities for even the busiest people. It is dated to begin on the 1st January but you can delve in at any point. Why not join our email marketing executive, Laura, who will be putting pen to paper from 14th February, throughout Lent and hopefully another 1785 days!

Journalling

Journaling Bibles have grown in popularity over the last couple of years. Their wide margins and stunning Bible verse illustrations allow the reader to be inspired as they spend time with God. With a whole range of Bibles, there truly is a journaling Bible to suit every taste.

You can even buy colouring pencils or journaling kits to expand your creative horizons!

Bible Studying

Think what you could learn from God’s word over 40 days of daily studying? Bible studies offer short reflections and teaching on key themes, verses or topics. There’s so many to choose from:

The Art of Lent

The Art of Lent lets the reader explore a painting a day from Ash Wednesday to Easter, perfect for art lovers and visual learners.

Reflections for Lent 2018 is ideal for anyone seeking Lectionary-based reflections. Each reading includes an in depth reflection from a leading Christian writer.

Nothing More and Nothing Less is based on the critically-acclaimed, award-winning film: I, Daniel Blake. This guide explores themes to justice and compassion.

Looking for ways to stay accountable? Most Bible studies are suitable for groups as well as individuals, so why not ask a friend or friends to study alongside you?
