Ash Wednesday

Today begins the season of Lent in the Christian calendar, a forty-day period of fasting and repentance imitating Jesus’ forty days of temptation in the desert. It is a season of preparation for the holiest season in the calendar, the Passion week and Easter. If I were a good Catholic, I would have only one full meal today, eat no meat on Fridays and other fast days and increase my times of prayer and giving to charity. However, since I’m Pentecostal, I’m just giving up beer and coffee.

  1. Haha. As a Baptist, and our belief in the necessity for balance in the universe, I will compensate for your new lackluster coffee/beer drinking habits and pound back Starbucks and Keiths like nobody’s business.
