A Lenten Poll

Now that we are into our second full week of Lent, I thought it would be good to pause and take stock of our efforts to practice the Lenten disciplines of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. Take a moment to complete the poll below and, remember, you’re welcome to send me a confidential email once per week to let me know in more detail how you are doing with your Lenten practices and I’ll respond personally.

  1. I am finding this Lent to be a bit less traditional. My practice has been to fast/abstain from something and to do something extra as I have grown older (am in my 50’s).
    This year, with the stuff of everyday life looming larger than usual, I am finding my lenten discipline to be more that of learning to accept what is as it is and asking God’s help to become more understanding and compassionate instead of being so critical and judgmental. It is a struggle, but worth it.

    • Kathy, sounds like the wisdom that comes with age…a wisdom that enables us to go beyond simply performing actions and to apply the lessons of the disciplines to real life experiences. I hope this continues to be an enriching experience for you.
