“Welcome to the 40 Day journey. Many of you, like me may not have grown up in a church tradition that participated in the Lenten period. Intentionally practicing the spiritual disciplines of prayer, fasting and acts of charity over the 40 days leading up to Easter; it has a long history in the Christian church. We are excited to share the 40 Days of Faith and Hope in Action. It will be an opportunity for you to perhaps try something new, or return to something you’ve already done — a season of focusing on important issues that matter to God’s heart.” - Joanne Beach – Director, Alliance Justice and Compassion
Alex – Connecting Online: “It’ll be interesting to have a community to connect with whose also thinking about the same topics each day”
Shri — Connecting through devotional booklet: “ This 40 Day project inspires me not only to pray, but make a commitment to act upon it.”
David — Church Leader: “Those who participate in the 40 Days of Faith and Hope in Action are going to be led to pray, and that will be a natural step into finding something to commit to, even a small step, and will also be an opportunity to be inspired themselves as well as inspire others.”
Joanne: “Each day there will be a specific passage of scripture that focuses on justice and compassion. Imagine, thousands of us joining together on this journey! We are confident that it will draw you closer to God’s heart and to his mission.”
