Lent – Count Your Blessings

As people identify, in a small way, with Christ’s temptation and his fast in the wilderness, it is customary to give up some luxury during Lent – chocolate, sugar, alcohol perhaps. However, Steve Bailey, our vicar, is encouraging the members of St Paul’s to take part in Christian Aid’s “Count your blessings.”

As members of the wealthy West, for each day in Lent, Christian Aid is challenging us to do something or give something that will make a difference to those less fortunate than ourselves.

There are more details on Christian Aid’s website here.
