Facebook PageWelcome to Lent 4.5. Our Facebook page is a resource for individuals like you to share their experiences, reflections and the personal steps they have taken to simplify their lives, lower their consumption, and protect God’s creation. For example, participants might share how they have made their homes more energy efficient or where they find good local food at reasonable prices.

The Facebook community also provides an opportunity to ask questions and find help on how to make the lifestyle changes which you have selected. By sharing comments and advice we can support each other’s faith commitment to bring forth a more just and sustainable world.

Imagine if the Earth were divided equally among all of us. Each person would receive 4.5 acres. Now imagine that everything you need – food, energy, home, clothing, gadgets – must come from those 4.5 acres. But it takes 22.3 acres to maintain the average American lifestyle.There is a new way of observing Lent that helps us care for God’s creation by taking steps toward using only our fair share of its resources. Moving in the direction of 4.5 is essential for anyone walking in the footsteps of Jesus today.

Our Ministry

Lent 4.5 is a seven-week faith formation program which inspires and informs Christian communities on how to use the traditional Lenten disciplines of prayer, fasting and almsgiving to protect God’s creation, embrace Gospel justice and nurture spiritual fulfillment. It offers practical opportunities for people of faith to apply the values of Christian Simplicity to their everyday lives.
