This year I am making an intentional choice to reflect more deeply during Lent. For the next 6 weeks I will follow six stories from around the world. 6 stories that will call me out of my individual self-indulgent story into the larger narrative of God's kingdom on earth. I will give up six different luxuries, one a week, that I probably take for granted, in order to enter into these other stories.
Today I made a list of all the things I am privileged with in the areas of: money, health, disease, faith, freedom, education. I was supposed to be specific. So far I've listed 30 things.
See here for more info on this 6 week plan.
See here for today's story.
I'm looking forward to the stories.
