Almost every year I decide I should really use Lent to ponder… or to become more spiritual or something. Seriously, it seems like such a basically good idea. And, every year I forget. I’m in Seminary and we don’t seem to talk about it much. I haven’t gotten over to Wikipedia yet to see if there is a cool story about giving stuff up. I DO have some trout in my freezer that we could fry on Friday I guess…

Thoughts on Lent?
Did you give up anything?
Have you ever had a great experience with Lent?
Anybody ever go through the book Mars Hill (Bell’s Mars Hill, don’t think Driscoll is going to support Lent too much) put out a few years ago? I think I saved it, never printed it, and definitely don’t remember anything about it.
I find it funny the amount of tests and papers and discussion forums I have to do for Seminary… And, this might be my first conversation on Lent. If there are a billion Roman Catholics then I am just out of touch right? 🙂
