I started observing Lent a few years ago. I was looking for a way to dwell in the Easter season and focus on the good news and celebration of Easter Sunday. I had no idea what I was doing.

So, why are we talking about something that’s supposed to be a secret? I had a hard time taking on this blog post because seasons of … [Read more...]
