Love Your Streets are joining forces with Big Bible, Neighbourhood Prayer Network, HOPE. StreetBank, CARE, Redeeming Our Communities, Parish Pump and Street Angels - CNI Network to encourage people across the UK to #Do1NiceThing each day during Lent.
The challenge aims to equip people with a different #Do1NiceThing activity every day between Ash Wednesday and Easter Sunday which will make our communities nicer places to be.
Paul Blakey MBE, founder of Street Angels - CNI Network, comments, "#Do1NiceThing is a great way of showing others and our communities the love of Christ in action. From ideas such as being a nicer driver to organising an Easter street party, #Do1NiceThing is simple but effective."
Bex Lewis of the Big Bible comments, "Our lives have become more busy, hectic and harried. Lent offers us an opportunity to slow down, to reflect on some prayerful poetry along with others via #BIGRead14, and then put something simple into practice as we each seek to #Do1NiceThing”
Rebekah Brettle, founder of Neighbourhood Prayer Network, says, "Neighbourhood Prayer Network will be encouraging as many people as possible to take part in #Do1NiceThing over lent. In our technology driven lives, this is a simple way to impact our neighbourhoods for the better, with the potential to reach so many with the love of God."
The #Do1NiceThing Lent Challenge is available at www.do1nicething.org.uk and people are encouraged to tweet and update Facebook with the challenges and Barefoot Prayer thoughts each day during Lent.
