Through the Window

Connecting with creation through Lent even when you can't get outside.

At the moment, because of growing awareness of the climate crisis and biodiversity loss society is becoming much more aware of and focused on the natural world. For many people this has included getting outside more, and this is a good thing, but not everyone is able to get outside easily or even at all.

"Through the Window" is a series of ideas for connecting with creation for people who are unable to get outside easily. There is one idea for each week and although they don't actively mention Lent, they are springtime orientated, gently Christian and so hopefully could be used through Lent with people who have no specific connection with the church as well as those who do.

These can be used by people who can get outside, by those who cannot but have a window to look out of, by those who have internet access, and by those who have nothing but the sheet on which these pictures and words are printed.
