Lent is Here!!!

Merry Ash Wednesday to all as we welcome the Lenten season. As we should be perpetual repenters in our sanctification, there is certainly nothing wrong with an intense season of introspection and repentance of sins that might be brought to mind because of such investigation into the heart.

I have no plans to give up anything or go to a particular diet, but I will be examining my heart for some pruning during this season. I do plan on fasting on Good Friday and then breaking that fast with a Congregational meal of soup and bread before a Communion service in the evening.

Anyhow, ask God how you might spend this season in a manner that heightens your awareness of indwelling sin.

    What is your practice of fasting on Good Friday? Do you eat before dawn, or not at all until the service? Do you drink water during the day?

  2. Dinner from the previous night will be my last meal. It will only be a two meal fast with skipping breakfast and lunch. I do drink water.

    I have fasted for 3 days at a time in the past, but don’t plan on it this time.

    Thanks, Rick. I may join you in that this year, 1000 miles or so away.
