40 bags in 40 days

Looking for a Lenten discipline with visible results?

The blog offers a plan to declutter and simplify using the forty days of Lent to give up or give away unnecessary stuff. Although not explicitly offered as a religious discipline, the challenge runs from Ash Wednesday through Holy Saturday, with Sundays as days off.

The blog author says, “I want to start a revolution against all of this stuff that everyone tries to sell us and tell us we need.”

What does your Lenten discipline look like? [How] does it marry your spiritual life to your worldly context?

I’m always looking for ways to de-clutter. I have six books on how to declutter, but they’re lost in the clutter! 🙂

I’ll try this. But it’s *so* hard for me to throw things out — *everything* is a cherished memory!

Wish me luck!

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
