I don’t remember that I ever heard of Lent while I was growing up. If I did, it would have been clear to me that it was from another tradition–not the way we did things.
So Lent wasn’t part of my year or thought or life for a long time–until children came into our family. That made me think much more intentionally about the most important things. When I realized how haphazardly we tended to stumble upon Easter–oops, oh my goodness, it’s Palm Sunday already–I wanted something more.
I’m interested to know your response or reaction, so please come back here to my blog to comment.
