Lent is this wonderful opportunity to reflect on various spiritual themes – the Year of Mercy and more! We often give things up. Yet, I would like to challenge each of my readers to explore how they could “Evangelize” during Lent using any of the digital tools that are on their desktop, laptop, or any of the mobile tools that you have access to.
Why do I challenge you? I listened to Fr. Frank DeSiano’s Webinar Lent in the Year of Mercy recently. And as I listened this slide was important to me –
Why? Because my mind saw a chart just waiting to be transformed into ideas where we could be Digital Disciples and Evangelizers. I invite you to “brainstorm” with me about possible options. For example, I would retitle the slide to: Corporal Works of Mercy – Options for Digital Discipleship. Then the three headings revised to: (1) Work, (2) Personal Digital Activity, and (3) Church Digital Activity.
As I begin to brainstorm, here are a couple of thoughts flowing through my mind:
(Work)To Feed the hungry – (Personal Digital Activity) Give up a meal and contribute to the Catholic Relief Services
(Work) To clothe the naked – (Church Digital Activity) – Create a graphic using Canva that promotes the local shelter with a call to action to bring in new or gently used clothes to give to the shelter.
I invite YOU, my wonderful readers, to continue to brainstorm for all us! If you look at the chart, what do you see as possible options to be a Digital Disciple or Evangelizer? I ask you to continue the conversation by clicking on the “LEAVE A COMMENT” link towards the bottom of this page.
I look forward to hearing the wonderful suggestions that you will offer this Digital Community!
