Live Lent: Embracing Justice

Each year at the start of Lent, Christians are challenged to turn away from sin and towards new life. Together we acknowledge that our own lives, our communities and our world stand in need of God’s redeeming and transforming power.

Live Lent: Embracing Justice is the Church of England’s theme for Lent 2022. It invites us to examine our own lives truthfully, to see the world more deeply and to pray – for the church and the world far and near – that ‘justice may roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream’ (Amos 4.24).

  • The adults’ edition offers a daily Bible reading, a short reflection and a prayer, as well as a practical challenge for each day of Lent. Each week follows a different thread through the many stories of justice in the Bible to explore how God works with humanity to bring justice, wholeness and salvation to all.
  • The children’ edition provides a fun daily action to help children and their families explore how we can live well together, as well as a weekly reading and prayer.

Both booklets are supported by a wide range of free digital resources for individuals, groups and churches available via the Church of England website.
