The above headline about The Church of the Epiphany in East Providence ran in the Providence Journal today, Monday March 15th 2010! The article is about 70+ Epiphany parishioners who have pledged with their rector, The Rev. Jennifer Pedrick,to give up "stuff" for Lent this year. These parishioners have agreed to refrain from buying anything but food, medicine and fuel during Lent, while also clearing out the clutter they have accumulated in their houses and spiritual lives in preperation for Easter.
The Wonderful article and accompanying photos took up an entire page in the paper. What great publicity for an outside-the-box Lenten program. Check it out:
