Often, during Lent, we think “what will I give up?” But what if we asked instead, “What can I take on?” This is the fast God desires:
“Is not this the fast that I choose:
… to let the oppressed go free,
and to break every yoke?
Is it not to share your bread with the hungry,
and bring the homeless poor into your house;
when you see the naked, to cover him,
and not to hide yourself from your own flesh?” (Isaiah 58:6-7)
This bulletin board includes creative ideas for practicing the Works of Mercy, drawn from our Disciple of Mercy Journal. There is an 8.5 x11 PDF that includes the 14 Works of Mercy and some board accents that will print well in black and white or in color. There is a separate file with the top banner to be tile-printed as a “poster” print option.
