I’m starting lent today.
OK OK, I don’t normally observe Lent. It’s something that is looked upon as old-fashion in the evangelical tradition. Lol but I don’t agree with every tradition, and this is one of them. I’ve never observed Lent before because it wasn’t encouraged in my church. Lol but that doesn’t mean I can’t do it myself!
This year, I’ll be giving up Soda and fast food. I’ll also be trying Lectio Divina, something that we evangelicals don’t practice at all. Lectio will be a bit of a challenge for me, that’s Ok though, I always embrace challenges! The reason why it will be a challenge, is because I’m going to have to memorize the verses I pray. I can’t just read through right there, (unless I have an app or a Kindle book.
i’m also going to commit to blogging here more during Lent! I want to do this at least twice weekly. I’d actually like to do it 3 times weekly, but I’m starting with twice just to be sure it’s actually something I can commit to.
