here is the discussion of Lent by Ligon Duncan. This is yet another case of needing to know something about history and historical theology before jumping on the "trendianity" bandwagon. The liturgical calendar may be older than so much of what pop culture offers, but it isn't old enough to be biblical not to mention Protestant. Adding extra requirements, holidays or anything else, are not aids in our spiritual growth. Chapter 6 of Holiness by Grace is on tap for 4.23. See you then!
