The Archbishop of York Dr John Sentamu is to post a daily reflection online to encourage people to use the next 40 days of Lent by turning towards God’s love. He will also tweet daily messages from @JohnSentamu.
The Archbishop of York said: “I Love Life and so I Live Lent. Lent is both fasting and feasting. Fasting by getting to know God better and to find out what he has in store for us. You know what they say – if you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans…..well now is the time! It doesn’t matter if you are new in faith or have no faith at all, God hears us when we call. I encourage you today to make a plan for Lent. Pick a time or find a place to pray. Remember, prayer changes things and changes us, followers of Jesus who serve others and show God's love in action. It is feasting as we are fed by Jesus Christ - the bread of heaven; his active word in scripture made alive for us by the Holy Spirit”
The Archbishop's Lent Calendar will be available from 18 February 2015 to 4 April 2015
