As Lent approaches each year, often our minds turn to, “what will we do; what will we give up?”

Instead let’s nudge our people to consider the following: instead of giving up, why not put something in, something that will take hold and stay with us for the rest of our lives. Remember Lent is about change/conversion. Real penance is to live life well: to be the mercy and peace of God toward others.

Here are forty ideas to suggest to people in our faith communities.
