It is Important to Stay Online … at least a Little
’Tis the Season
If You Simply Must Leave Social Media for Lent
Some alternatives to consider if you still feel called to follow a social media blackout:
- IF you simply must log off for Lent – here’s a fun fact: Sundays are your ‘get out of Lenten sacrifice free’ card. You are not bound to your Lenten promises on Sundays. So take advantage of this day of reprieve and log on and share and connect!
- Choose to reduce the amount of time on social media. Cut back not out.
- Tithe a portion of your social media engagement to sharing scripture, Christian music or Pope videos, saint quotes, or even funny Catholic memes.
- Consider the use of a Social Media Scheduler to share your posts throughout Lent. Remember: You can log on and set them up on Sunday.
How I Am Spending my 2018 LENT
This year WINE: Women In the The Evangelization is once again journeying through Lent with the one of a kind Lenten themed Book: Walk in Her Sandals: Experiencing Christ’s Passion through the Eyes of Women. Like the movie, Groundhog Day, we are repeating our actions to learn more and more each time. After a year of praying, studying, and even just living, we are not the same person as in 2017. I am excited to see all the God has done in my life as I once again reflect on my personal journey with Christ through the eyes of not only the women in Walk in Her Sandals, but the ladies on the virtual with me.
MORE on the Book
You’ve never read a book like this before:
It’s part Bible study, part reflection on women’s special gifts, part prayer and discussion guide . . . all tied together with a fabulous biblical historical mini-novel about women living through the events of Jesus’s passion, death, and resurrection. Reading it will draw you into the experience of Lent in an entirely new way. It will deepen your relationship with Jesus. It will lead you to contemplate your own gifts in light of his work. And it will encourage you to step out into the new year refreshed and empowered to follow the Lord.
