Here is an original way of approaching Lent, one that will encourage you to consider your own faith journey in the light of the Easter story. Inspired by Ian McGregor's Radio 4 programme, 'The History of the World in 100 Objects', Gordon Giles spends each week in a different room gleaning spiritual lessons from everyday household objects. As a result, you might discover that finding God in the normal pattern of life - even in the mundane - transforms how you approach each day. Running as a thread through it all are the seven Rs of Lent: regret, repentance, resolution, recognition, reconciliation, renewal and resurrection.
The Revd Dr Gordon Giles is Vicar of St Mary Magdalene's Church, Enfield, North London, Director of Post-Ordination Training in the Edmonton Episcopal Area of London Diocese, and the chaplain to shoemakers. He is the author of several books, including Comings and Goings for BRF. He is married to Jessica and has a daughter Maria.
