Practicing our faith

Practicing Our Faith by Dorothy C. Bass is the book I'm using for my Lenten devotions studies. When I was growing up all I heard about lenten practices was giving up something. I find it more helpful to begin something. And to begin something that will carry on past the lenten season. So this year, as I've done for several years, I joined an onlin discussion group at ecunet.org and have begun talking with others about this book and how I'm using it. What works for me, may not work for you, but the idea of starting something positive - achieving my ideal weight, reading scripture, helping another person, finding a new prayer pattern, making time for family and friends or .... - is something I hope everyone does. It doesn't have to be a big change, just something new and improved
