PWRDF Lent Resource: Lent 4 Generosity


PWRDF Lent Resource: Lent 4 Generosity Luke 15: 1-3, 11b-32
     In this fourth week of Lent we are considering what it means to be generous. As we are considering those things that others do without, we are becoming more aware of those things that we have to share. We are called to recognize opportunities to reach out, and to do so with joy in our hearts. We are challenged to focus on the benefits of giving to enhance the wider community, rather than the disappointment that can be felt at perceived personal deprivation.

     This week we will reflect on the role of generosity and sharing within our food system.
     Mon: We want – Health. Does your faith benefit from both short and long-term sustenance? 
     Tues: We Don’t Want Inequality. Do you hoard the blessings in your life or do you celebrate them in community? 
     Wed: Mix it Up- Consumption. We all work better when we are not hungry; is your faith at its top potential or does it need to be fed? 
     Thurs: In the Garden – Environment. Is there sufficient room in your faith to continue growth, or do you need to seek out creative new spaces? 
     Fri: Going Back to the Source – Access. Do you provide for your spiritual development as frequently and as cleanly as you provide your body’s water needs? 
     Sat: The Process – Production. How accessible is your spiritual home? How often do you visit?
