Faith & Religion, Lent

Shrove Tuesday

Shrove Tuesday (Mardi Gras) today. On Saturday while at Cityside Baptist we were all given a small black envelope with a fold-out series of reflections for Lent inside it. Some thoughts for milestones through Lent with suggestions for reflective activities on that day.

Today’s entry reads

SHROVE TUESDAY – 24 February. Day before Lent
Sometimes know as ‘pancake Tuesday’ from the tradition of using up the eggs and fat in the house before the Lenten fast.

Suggestion: Gather friends together to make and eat pancakes. Talk together about changes you would like to make to who you are and how you live your life.

Sounds like a plan to me.

We’re having house group here for pancakes tonight – must go and get some lemons off the tree in the garden.
