40 Days of Lent: Day 17

40 days online

Day 17: Visit or call someone confined to their home.




Today, we are taking a moment out of our day and thinking of someone else, specifically someone who is homebound and doesn’t get out into the outside world.





Looking for ideas?

This article might be written more for clergy who go to visit those in the hospital or who are homebound, but some of the suggestions in this article are very good ones.  The time of day you visit, how long to stay, etc seem pretty universal to all of us.  It’s a good read if today’s challenge is something that you don’t normally do.




PCUSA suggested readings for Daily Readings in Lent–Lectionary Year A

Ps. 81
