Lent Without Religion

Lent Without Religion March 11, 2019

I love the cycle of the liturgical year, the anticipation of Advent, the joy of Christmas and Easter, the surprise of Epiphany, the daily grind of Pentecost and Ordinary Time. And then there’s Lent. It’s always been my least favorite of the liturgical seasons for a number of reasons, but this year I’m dedicated to thinking about and living it differently. My thoughts on these matters were published yesterday in Bearings Online, a publication of the Collegeville Institute in Collegeville, Minnesota. Enjoy–and let me know how you “do Lent”!
