I am giving up my home for lent. That is my visible lenten discipline. However the real hope of my lenten sojourn is to connect to a community in my city that I and the church often negelects (even in charity) and fears. The Homeless. Who are the homeless.
That is the main question.
Basic Rules to follow:
Rule #1 – I must live outside during the Lenten Season (Feb. 22-April 8th).
Rule #2 – I must keep car at work and only use it for work purposes.
Rule #3 – I must ride VIA to any other location that is not work related.
Rule #4 – I cannot use any of my house amenities during lent.
Rule #5 – I have a limited amount of money to spend each day.
(I am attending a Church Youth Retreat March 14-18, 2012…but I am sleeping at a church and on the Amtrak Train)
When I write about specific people I have changed the name, places, and any personal information about him or her that could jeopardize their privacy. This is not to alter the story for any advantage…and I will be truthful in my adaptions. Thanks for understanding.
