LENT – 40 ACTS – ACT 3
Now here’s a thing, for most of my life I have believed we are here to help one another however and whenever we can, and yet I have never really put this belief into action in a controlled and co-ordinated way, relying instead on performing spontaneous and random acts of kindness. And so, for Lent this year, rather than giving up something to benefit myself, I thought I would be more proactive and help others less fortunate than myself.
After a bit of research, I came across this 40 Acts website and after clicking around it and reading some personal stories I knew this would be right for me.
Basically, each day for the 40 days of Lent, there is an act to perform, each act has a red, amber and green traffic light at the end for you to choose how to respond. Of course you can choose to not respond, which kind of defeats the point; however, we are all human.
So here we are on day three and I have chosen to respond to this act with all options, so strongly do I feel about todays topic: Period Poverty.

If you would like to join in today, brilliant, if you would like to take the 40 days challenge, even better. I pray Jesus inspires you as he has countless millions before us.
