A holy Lent

  6. Like Archbishops of Canterbury before him, Welby has also commissioned a book for this year's observance of Lent. Episcopal chaplain and theologian Kathryn Greene-McCreight's I Am With You is about "growing closer to God," said Welby in his foreword. "...Through the book we travel through day and night, the reality of human experience lived through our lives. At the end the dawn brightens with the hope and certainty of resurrection, the knowledge that in the grace and love of God we are called to eternal life with the one who smashes down the barriers of death."
  7. As it has done in previous years, the Anglican Church of Canada is offering a list of resources for Lent.
  8. The diocese of Worcester, Church of England, has also compiled its own list of Lenten Resources for 2016.
  9. Green Anglicans, The Anglican Church of Southern Africa's Environmental Network, is urging Anglicans worldwide to "take a carbon fast, to reduce the actions which damage God's creation." This can take the form of reducing the use of petrol, electricity, plastic, paper, water and toxins, it says on its website.
  10. Christians have also been calling attention to Lent on Instagram.
