Lent: Find 40

Challenge yourself over Lent to find these 40 things.  Some will be easy and some a little trickier but all will get you to notice the world around you!


Lent offers a space to lay things down, to refocus on God.  Traditionally the 'fat' would be used up as a reminder of Passover and the journey of the Exiles.  Why not set yourself a journey, 40 steps or wanders, it might be a 10 minute stroll in a morning or a hike on a day off.
Your steps, your journey... where will they lead you?
