One way to journey through Lent is to use this daily calendar as a way to deepen your faith walk. It includes ways to pray and to play, ways to study God's word and to serve, ways to live deeply into our days and to rest. Approach this calendar with grace. Do what you can, not what you can't. Tweak it if you need to. Challenge yourself, but don't choke yourself. Blessings to you this Lenten season!
I have a deep reverence for the season of Lent. I appreciate that the season calls me deeper into truth and repentance and relationship with the Living God. Lent - the 40 days (not including Sundays) that proceed Easter is considered a "fasting season." For many years, I have made it my Lenten practice to fast from alcohol, red meat, sweets, and unnecessary spending. I have even fasted from wearing different outfits everyday! There are a plethora of resources out there for Lent. This year, I am keeping it simple (fasting has a way of reminding me to keep it simple). I am doing two main things in addition to my traditional fast: 1) following, with grace, the daily Lenten calendar, and 2) reading Trevor Hudson's Lenten devotional every morning.
