The online periodical the Federalist has two articles on Lent–specifically, on observances such as giving things up for Lent. One is by a Reformed pastor, Rev. Brian Lee, entitled Repent of Lent: How Spiritual Disciplines Can Be Bad for Your Soul. The other is by a Lutheran pastor, my friend, Rev. Todd Peperkorn, entitled Why Lent Should Matter to Everyone.
Read them both. What did you learn from the two articles? Which one, in your opinion, makes the best case?
