Lent Family Faith Formation Tip - Lent is a time of self-examination. In your family time, ask some of these questions: Did I love people today like Jesus would love them? Did I do things I wish I hadn’t done, or were there things I should have done that I didn’t? Pray together about those things. (Faith Formation Ministries; crcna.org/FaithFormation)
