On this Ash Wednesday, we enter a time of reflection and turning towards God.
In Lent, we slow down, take time, and examine our internal spiritual lives and the way we live out our Christian faith in the world around us. Our hope is that this Lenten calendar will be the beginning of actions intended to create more mindful behaviors throughout the year. Because some of our collective choices have led to a changing global climate, which translates to warmer temperatures, rising sea-levels, and severe storms, we use Lent as a time to recommit to treading lightly on God’s Earth.
The Presbyterian Hunger Program strives to walk with people in moving towards sustainable choices that restore and protect all of God’s children and creation. As people of faith, we seek to “serve and preserve” God’s world.
