Lent is usually about giving stuff up, isn't it? What if you could add something transformational to the traditional?
What if you could give up chocolate and give the money to your favourite charity? What if you could turn the TV off and spend more time helping your neighbour? What if Lent was a preparation for a lifetime of big-heartedness that reflected God's amazing generosity? Well, that is where 40acts; the generosity challenge from Christian charity Stewardship, comes in.
'40acts' celebrates its 5th birthday in 2015! Each year we have encouraged individuals to take a daily challenge: 40 nudges in a generous direction, alongside 40 blogs to read and ponder. In 2014 over 46,000 joined us, creating a wave of over 1.8 million acts of generosity in more than 180 countries worldwide.
We also created '40acts Together' especially for groups. Whether you are a family, church, small group, school or student, '40acts Together' provides you with online and printable resources to guide you through your generous journey as a community.
Here is what you can do next:
- Sign up to receive the daily challenges by email
- Find a group to do '40acts' with, and sign up for '40acts Together'
- Get connected with 40acts on social media.
