The period of Lent is a period for focusing on hope for the world, hope for creation, hope for the future. The rainbow is God's gift to us, a gift of hope.
Through Lent I set up my rainbow table, giving each of the seven weeks of Lent it's own colour. Staring with red, moving on to orange and so on. I have candles in the different colours, I plant seeds which will be my rainbow flower bed in summer, I cook in connection with the colours.
I have developed this rainbow calendar for my upcoming book, based on an idea by a friend. And the idea is to help celebrate Lent, a period when giving and sharing are the main focuses.
