Lent Event follows the example Jesus gave us. Before Jesus did anything else. Before he called his disciples, told a parable or healed the sick, Jesus spent forty days fasting in the wilderness. He was led there by the Spirit. He spent forty days without food, forty days without consuming. Forty days struggling with who he was and what it would mean for him to do God’s work in the world.
The idea is simple. During Lent we give up a luxury or two and donate the money saved to projects that offer a better future to some of the world’s neediest people.
Lent Event was the inspiration of Sarah White. Sarah felt God calling her to respond to extreme hardship faced by families, particularly children, in the Third World. With a team of supporters, Sarah has developed the concept so that it can be shared by any community that wishes to be involved.
