chit chat

Thursday, February 19, 2015

During lent our church is being encouraged to get involved in 40 days of generosity. This doesn't mean giving lots of money or possessions away it simply means being generous with you life in all aspects. today's task is to chat to your neighbours. I often don't see them as my coming and going time doesn't coincided with most peoples work hours. I did make the effort to go and see someone who has been in hospital and found out that she has become depressed as she isn't healing as well as she hoped and is unable to lift and carry. So we are shopping for her at the weekend. Going to the dog groomers a postman started to chat to me it turns out that he's doing the same for lent. If this carries on as the organisers hope it could radically transform our communities into much more caring and peaceful places so let's hope and pray that this happens.

    Sounds wonderful, we need more of this in the world.

    What a beautiful tradition! That sounds very much like the way my grandfather viewed Lent - not as a season of giving something up but one of giving to others. It sounds like you're off to a great start!
