Commenting briefly on her post this morning, I wrote: "I have about 12 hours to decide if and from what I will 'abstain' for the Six Glorious Weeks. I'm leaning toward an add-on rather than a subtraction, however. Maybe Both/And - as did our Lord those 40 days.... 'not bread alone/every word that proceeds from the mouth of God'.
Meanwhile (and on the subject of Lent) Scotty Ward Smith tweeted: "To equate Lent with legalism is similar to equating water with drowning. There's the right use, misuse, and abuse of most things."
I come from a church background that doesn't observe Lent in the traditional ways. This DOES not and WILL not keep me from intensifying my focus on the Christ whose passion resulted in my eternal salvation. I want to - I NEED to - "use" Lent rightly.
