Lent 2017 Carbon Fast

Consider participating in our Lenten Carbon Fast

For Christians, Lent is the time to remember the 40 days that Jesus spent in the wilderness, facing challenge and temptation and preparing for his ministry of proclaiming God’s reign.  And so during Lent, we, too, reflect on God’s purpose for our lives.  Fasts or “giving something up” have long been practiced during Lent.  Lenten fasts are intended to help people examine whether their lives reflect the love of God revealed in Christ.  A “carbon fast” serves this same purpose, and at the same time, reduces our actions that damage God’s Creation.  During Lent, we’ll offer daily practices that help people take small steps for a more sustainable world, and by doing so, rediscover a different relationship with God, with Creation and with one another.
