Lent 2017: All Together for Justice
This Lent, challenge yourself to change the world!
Are you ready to take on the Lent Challenge from All We Can?
All Together for Justice is a 6 week (40 day) resource of reflections, activities and prayers.
You can follow it daily as an individual or use it weekly in a small group. There are also other materials (including films, prayers and a talk) available to be used in a church service to help the whole congregation engage and be inspired.
The resources takes inspiration from John Wesley's words:
"Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can."
These words are a strong call to action and take seriously our ability to change the world together.
