Covenant with a friend or your pastor to keep the daily office, a cycle of prayers and readings used by many to begin and end each day connected to God.
Keep a journal of God Sightings, taking time each day to note how God is working in your life and in the world.
Select an area of your life to tithe: (Tithing is the "churchy" word for giving 10% of anything to God.) Here are some ideas:
- Go whole hog and for six weeks give 10% of all your income to charities of your choice.
- Every time you go grocery shopping, buy an extra 10% for the local food pantry.
- Volunteer 10% of your non-work time
- Spend 10% of your non-work time with someone you love but has been neglected.
- Reduce your carbon emissions or energy usage by 10%.
