Lent begins on Wednesday. Around the world, Christians will begin a 40 day season of prayer and fasting in preparation for the highest of our Holy Days— Easter.
I’m the one who does our devotional planning for holidays. Christopher leads the day-to-day spiritual formation, but when it comes to holidays (Easter, Christmas, etc.), I’m the one putting together the readings and plans. Because frankly, I enjoy it– and also, I’m the half of the couple who looks ahead far enough to say, “Advent starts in three weeks. What should we focus on as a family this season?”
