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.

You can read more about this eye-opening subject from the above link and from these links:

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.


First and foremost I am a reader, then a storyteller. My reading tastes are eclectic. My writing can focus around the intimacy of closed settings and may tend towards characters who might be hiding something from themselves.

  1. Dear Kelvin
    Thank you for publishing a blogpost that arises directly from your Christian faith. By so doing you have encouraged me, and I am sure you will encourage others.
    Thank you for another reason, too. I looked for your email address this morning, and couldn’t find it. I wanted it because during prayer yesterday evening at the house group to which I belong, I felt God gave me a message for you. It was this.
    “Tell Kelvin that I love him, and will always deal gently with him.”
    With very best wishes

      Such a lovely response. Thank you. You misplaced my email address for a reason, for God’s reason. Your response could not be more poignant. Thank you, for being so honest, for being so you.
      In love and prayers
