40 Birds of Lent

event_note February 28, 2023

I know every bird in the mountains, and the insects in the fields are mine.

Psalm 50:11

Patrick Kangrga the Minister for Christian Formation for Children and Youth at Grace Episcopal Church in Newton, MA has picked up parts of Salal + Cedar’s Lenten practice of attending to the Holy Word in creation. Their Intergenerational Formation program was focused on birds for National Birdfeeding Month. A former staff member who is into birding talked wonderfully about birds. Participants made birdfeeders and loved it. People thought 40 Birds of Lent, a practice of noticing, was a wonderful idea. We are super excited to share our ideas and practices with other communities.
