Experience Lent: Day 21 – Newsies

Experience Lent: Day 21 – Watch or read the local news with someone and pray.

It’s hard to watch the news. For me anyway. It’s not fun. Unless there’s a blooper or something. And those are pretty darn entertaining.

But otherwise, it’s mostly depressing.

It’s a reminder, however, of the need to work together to repair the brokenness.

We’re talking this week in Small Groups about what it means to restore the image of God, the image in which all humans were created. The practice today is an opportunity to become aware of the needs in our communities and ask God for ideas to help restore His image in the world.

Gather ’round your computer screen with a friend, co-worker or family at some point during the day. Read or watch a news segment and find the ways that God’s image has been broken and talk about ways to help bring restoration.
