Already we are in the second month of the year, and Lent will be around the corner before we know it! The Social Justice Commission has prepared a resource for congregations focusing on World Day of Social Justice (20 February) and readings for the first Sunday in Lent.
The resource contains a sermon reflection, and an adaptation of a traditional prayer, both written by Rev Gordon Scantlebury, Chairperson of the Social Justice Commission.
Also, check out our SJ Teams’ Human Rights page as resources are regularly added!
Lent Event is UnitingWorld’s call to individuals, Churches and Community Groups to embrace simple living, give up something from daily life and donate the money saved to support clean water, justice, peace and Christian Leadership projects.
They have excellent resources to guide congregations and individuals through the 40 days of Lent including videos, reflections, action ideas, group resources, fundraising ideas, and resources to become a Lent Event Coordinator.
