We are about to start Lent, which is often seen as a time of austerity and giving things up. I think we need to see Lent in a much more positive light – a time to take things up as well as give things up. Easy to think about what we can give up, but how about also deciding to give some time as a volunteer, either to help an elderly neighbour or to assist with some project in the community. This is a truly precious way to give something valuable back to God.
