In observing the season of Lent…

… it’s best to inspire, not require. Some children may find the practice of giving up a favorite food or TV show meaningful; others may prefer to add something, such as collecting money for the poor or being kind to others. Share with them how you observe Lent and what practices you find meaningful and invite them to decide what they would like to do. If you are in children’s ministry make sure to send home appropriate Lenten activities for families to practice together such as a Lenten calendar, daily devotional, prayers for each week, etc.
