Historically Christians have given things up during Lent to focus on the Lord. The most enduring of these practices is giving up meat on Fridays, hence the origin of the Friday night fish fry (which probably hasn’t done a whole lot for our spiritual lives). Let’s try something better this year and do something Better Than Fish on Friday during Lent.
FRIDAY CHALLENGE: The challenge for Friday, March 19th, is to wear a cross or carry one in your pocket. Each time you see or touch it, thank Jesus for his love for you that led him to the cross. Pocket crosses are available in the foyer if you don’t have one already.
