Lent in a "Virtual Bag"

Home » News » Lent in a "Virtual Bag"

Lent is a time to pay more attention to the inner life, which affects our outer life in the world around us. Christ's life, ministry, and death are remembered during this season. Also, it can be a time to think about our own journey of faith as we prepare ourselves for Holy Week and Easter.

One of the success stories which has risen from the pandemic is "Lent in a Bag" — a resource for folk to use at home using tactile objects, such as sand, stone, shells, and candles as a focus for prayer and reflection through the Lenten season.

As not all of our churches are able to send of bags of objects at the moment we have put together "Lent in a Virtual Bag" as an opportunity to journey through Lent as an individual, family or support bubble.

The suggestion is that you are creative about finding the objects for these reflections around your house or garden.

The readings and questions are provided in the leaflet that can be downloaded by clicking here.
