Thought for the Week:

Lent Challenge 2020 – 40 Everyday Questions.

This year’s Bishops’ Lent challenge is to have conversations with friends, family, colleagues, neighbours. Conversations we have are often on the same topics or are about practicalities. This challenge provides some simple questions about life, death and everything in between. In a society in which loneliness is on the rise, it’s good to find ways of connection with those around us & to have meaningful conversations. These are everyday questions that many of us wonder about, even if we wouldn’t usually have a conversation about them. Don’t worry, this is about conversation, not about having all the answers! The challenge is twofold:

* to listen to someone else’s viewpoint

*to ask ourselves how our own answers connect to

There’s one question for every day of Lent.

Here are the first 4 for this week:

*What would you like to be remembered for

*If you could ask God one question what would it be?

* Will we ever see an end to poverty, and if so how?

* What is your favourite time of day and why?
