Last year I got so frustrated with my friends and acquaintances who told me that they were giving up chocolate for Lent that I decided to produce the attached lenten guide. I had hoped to expand it this year but unfortunately the pressures of the conference have made that impossible. However I heard this week that Bethany Presbyterian Church is using it with their small groups this year and thought that some of you would like to use it as is for Lent this year. During Lent I will post some excerpts from the guide as well as some of the new material I have developed since.
Please let me know how you use it. As I update this for next year I would like to incorporate some of the responses from people that use it. Last year’s responses are posted on the Mustard Seed Journey blog.
This guide has now been updated for 2009. It can be downloaded here
