Is Lent primarily about giving things up or giving more time to God? (Lent short reflection 1)

Lent is most commonly associated with giving things up but if that is all that it means to us then we may be missing the point.

This is the first in a series of short videos which can be used by churches and individuals during Lent. Each video will ask a question which relates to the Biblical accounts of Jesus in the wilderness.

Churches are welcome to download and use the video in their own services, each one will be less than three minutes long so they can easily be used in services alongside any theme they are exploring for Lent. You do not need to ask permission to do use or share the video but it is always encouraging to hear how the content we are producing is being used. You can also use share the video link with individuals or for small groups to use as a discussion starter.

About honestaboutmyfaith

Hi, my name is Graeme and I’m married to a very patient wife. We have 4 children, 2 rabbits, a terrapin (and not a lot of peace and quiet!). I’m a Regional Minister for the Eastern Baptist Association in the UK (the views expressed in this blog are my own) and I am especially interested in making Church accessible to people who have no church background and also in how we disciple people in order to equip them to live out their faith in the 21st Century.
