Unusual Lenten Discipline

In recent years more and more people have chosen to embrace something new rather than give up something for Lent.  The list of possibilities for Lenten disciplines is nearly endless.  The most unique discipline I have heard this year is that chosen by Shawnthea Monroe.

Monroe is senior minister of Plymouth Church – a United Church of Christ Congregation in Shaker Heights, OH.  She has chosen to wear a collar for Lent.  In doing so, she realizes many she encounters each day who would otherwise have no idea of her vocation will visually identify her as a Christian minister.

So What?

Imagine if every time you walked into a room everyone there knew you were a follower of the way of Jesus.  How would this change the way you live your life?
