I like Maggi’s posting on Lent as a time of recognizing our dependence upon God, rather than a time of stressed self-improvement (maggi dawn: just (don’t) try harder). A thought I’ll keep with me for the season, particularly here as the days shorten as we move towards winter.
Pancakes were a success yesterday – though one of the visiting children suggested we should change churches if we had to give something up during Lent. In actuality, it’s more Kim and I who recognize the church seasons rather than where we attend where they aren’t really part of the culture.
And the blog should have seasonal purple on it now – try refreshing the browser a few times if it doesn’t appear when you get here initially.
