40 Day Challenge

Ok, I thought of one more thing. Tomorrow is (for many Christians) Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent - the 40 day period (minus Sundays) leading up to Easter. Like most Baptists, Lent has not been a big part of my background, but also like many Baptists, I'm beginning to discover the benefits of following the rhythm of the church year. This stuff isn't arbitrary, folks. Particularly this year, I see the wisdom of quiet, prayer, reflection, repentance and self-denial, service.

Anyway - here's a practice I'm going to be following this Lenten season.

I'm sorry your seminary experience didn't measure up. That seems like a tremedous challange not to become bitter and angry
