Lent is the season for truth-telling and repentance. It calls us to deep reflection on how we might address the persistent inequities in our country. Since 1972, the United Church of Canada has advocated a policy of guaranteed annual income that is more equitable and effective than existing government support programs.
In the attached guide, Rev. Barry Morris, Ann McRae, and Rev. Rose-Hannah Gaskin offer ideas for those composing Lenten liturgies or pastoral prayers or for use by Lenten study groups, or outreach committees. Each segment contains a suggested scripture, hymn ideas, a reflection or implication for GLI advocacy, and an action idea. The guide also includes complementary action suggestions.
