What are you giving up/doing for Lent?
Personally, I'm doing an Eastern Orthodox Lenten fast. I'm a vegan Monday-Friday and a vegetarian on the weekends. But first, I'm kicking it if with a week of a juice and fruit fast. Also, I'm going to mix this all together with daily Lectio Divina of John 4, 9, and 11. It's going to be tough, but there are so many spiritual, emotional, physical benefits of fasting.
At Seminary yesterday we were invited to begin the season of Lent with these words:You are invited, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, to observe a holy Lent, by self-examination, pentinence, prayer, fasting, and almsgiving; and by reading and meditating on the Word of
God.What about you? What have you decided to sacrifice or do differently during the season of Lent?
