So tomorrow it begins. Although right now we are, shall we say, a rather select group, I want to say a huge thanks to those joining us for our Simple Living Challenge. I’m anticipating learning a lot about my own consumption patterns as well as having a powerful daily reminder of the 800 million of God’s children who can’t just go to the faucet like I can. That being said, I’m drinking everything in sight today!
And it’s not too late–if you’ve been considering participating, you can still sign on here.
Moreover, we’ve decided to add a new wrinkle to the Challenge: for those of you who might feel that forty days is a bit much, why not join us for Tap Water Tuesdays? Every Tuesday in Lent would be a tap-water-only day, and I’ll be publishing something on the water issue each Tuesday morning. Tomorrow’s post: the de la Peña VanderPol family’s tap water vs. bottle water blind taste test….
Finally, I want to say how much I appreciate all other the creative ways I’ve heard different friends are celebrating Lent. The World Vision campaign seems especially excellent.
