Family Activity for Lent: A Repentance Box
It’s our Family Sorry Box.
Set right there near our our Family Peace Retreat .
Because what peace is there
without making peace with God?
It was an idea that that migrated here from a friend.
So we found a wooden box with a lid, a pen and a stack of paper — just recycled business cards.
Come Easter morning, we’ll burn up our cards of sins confessed.
Because they are, astoundingly, no more.
Because of Christ who did it all.
And we’ll take up our empty box of repentance, giving thanks that He has written our names
– not our sins –
“I, even I, am the one who wipes out your transgressions for My own sake,
And I will not remember your sins.”
