Smiley pancakes for Shrove Tuesday

Date: 12 February 2013

PUT A SMILE ON YOUR PANCAKE and change the world one daily action at a time

This Shrove Tuesday, 12 February, tens of thousands of people all over the country are getting ready to make the world a better place, one daily action at a time, by making special smiley pancakes - the first activity of Love Life Live Lent.

They are following the lead of the Archbishop of York, The Right Revd Dr John Sentamu, who reflected on how everywhere Jesus went “there was always prayer, there were always parties”, at Love Life Live Lent’s official launch at the Houses of Parliament on 17 January.

Bishops are joining in the fun around the country. The Bishop of Sheffield, the Rt Revd Dr Steven Croft is helping to serve pancakes to the clients of the Sheffield Cathedral Archer Project at an early morning pancake party outside the Cathedral at 8.15am. He said: “Put a smile on your pancake this year and make the world a better place one action at a time. Then encourage one another by tweeting your pictures and stories using the #livelent tag."
