Welcome to Lent

For the next forty days, the Christian Church enters the season of Lent, a season of self-examination and repentance in preparation for the events of Easter. It’s traditional (though this is my first year practicing it) for Christians to give up something for Lent in order to have some small tangible reminder of the process of suffering and repentance. I’m giving up coffee. Each time I crave it I’ll be reminded in some small way of Christ’s own sacrifices for me–and ultimately, His greatest sacrifice at the cross. May you have a refreshing and cleansing season of Lent. Go in peace.
