#UULent has been created as a way for Unitarian Universalists to engage in a shared spiritual practice alongside siblings in faith who are observing Lent. In some Christian traditions, in preparation for the celebration of Easter, the faithful make a personal sacrifice as a way of bringing them closer to G*d, and reminding them of the sacrifices that Jesus and his followers made.

As Unitarian Universalists, we share theological roots with our Christian siblings. However, rather than a practice of self-denial, this is an opportunity to spend the Season of Lent engaged in a spiritual discipline of deep intention and appreciation of our world, our place in it, and an openness to Grace in our daily lives.

#UULent is designed to be used individually, as a family, or as a congregation. For each day in Lent a word has been selected. Each day participants are invited to reflect on the meaning of the day’s word, then create a photograph that represents the word, idea, practice, or concept and post it here and/or elsewhere.

Beginning on Ash Wednesday and for each day until Easter, the word for the day and a related quote will be posted on the #UULent FaceBook page. Reflect and engage throughout the day, checking for the word and quote in the morning, then return later in the day to add your photo* and to see the images and words others have shared throughout the day (*YOUR photo – please respect copyright!). Or if you prefer, use another social media platform to share your photos.

May this intentional practice and discipline impact your daily life in ways that bring you closer to your spiritual core and offer you resiliency for life.

  1. […] For the past couple of years, I’ve participated in #UULent, a social media practice that helps me be a little more intentional and focused during this season. Several years ago, Mr. Barb Greve and Zr. Alex Kapitan collaborated to create the #UULent calendar and to promote the practice among Unitarian Universalists. (Read more about it here.) […]
