Lent, writer Kyle Franklin points out, "... is a time of reflecting on Jesus’ time in the desert, his eventual passion and subsequent death. Lent is a time of devotion to deeper understanding of both who God is in our lives and the ways we can best manifest beliefs in our lives."
Rev. Tom Altepeter explains the history and traditions behind Lent here. He explains many Christians recognize Lent by fasting from something.
We're curious, are you fasting from something this Lenten season?
