Lent has become a tradition for many Christians in preparation for Easter.
“Traditions like this are important because they help form who we are,” he said. “They connect us to the past. They help us learn from the past and connect it to our futures. It connects us to God. It reminds us of our servitude. And, it provides an anchor to our faith.” - See more at: http://heralddemocrat.com/news/local/ash-wednesday-starts-lent-s-reflective-period#sthash.WcCXnozT.dpuf
How do we prepare for the journey of Easter?
... Fast ...
... Pray ...
... Spiritual discipline ...
How about listening, reflecting, serving others, loving others? You can remove the negative, but add a positive.
