'Generosity' and not 'self-improvement' the key to a good Lent, says Justin Welby at St Paul's
23 February 2015
Lent is not 'a narcissistic festival of self-improvement', but must 'overflow in generosity’, the Archbishop of Canterbury has said in the first of a series of Lent and Easter events at St Paul's.
Speaking at Reflection: A Good Lent, part of the St Paul's Forum's Passion and Resurrection series on Thursday 19 February, Justin Welby pointed to silence and the escape from the often over-powering modern world as the basis for reflection during this holy season.
In a wide-ranging conversation with the Cathedral's Chancellor, Canon Mark Oakley, The Archbishop spoke of our modern view of Lent as a time to give something up, calling us to do more than just give up eating biscuits.
The Passion and Resurrection series continues on Thursday, 19 March, when Stephen Cottrell, Bishop of Chelmsford
discusses Passion: A Good Holy Week
