Give Up Your Silence: A Lenten Invitation


The Diocese of North Carolina invites you into a reflective space this Lent, a space you can incorporate into the Lenten practice you’ve chosen. You are invited to discern ways you might give up your silence and lend your voice to uphold the values consistent with the teachings and example of Jesus. You are invited not into direct action (yet) but into a time to learn and think. How might you give up your silence to ensure the dignity of every human being?

Just as Lent can be honored in different ways, so, too, can giving up your silence take different forms. But before you take action, you must discover why it matters to you. May this Lenten season be one of learning and discerning.
