“I long to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift… that we may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith, both yours and mine.”
What is Lent in a Bag?
Lent in a Bag is an activity/devotional exercise that helps families and households focus on the season of Lent. The idea was shared several years ago by Shawn Schreiner and Vicki Garvey. Since then Lent in a Bag has become one of the most read posts on Building Faith! You can see the original post below:
Variations of Lent in a Bag
Every year, we hear from churches who do Lent in a Bag a little differently. Some folks include other items, each symbolizing a spiritual theme of Lent. Most churches create devotional guides, instructions, or meditations to go along with Lent in a Bag. Some churches don’t use a bag at all, choosing boxes or other containers instead. Lent in a Box! What about you? Does your church do Lent in a Bag – what is your version?
