Lent is the “liturgical season” of 40 days between Ash Wednesday and Easter Sunday. As Christians we observe this season in a variety of ways. Lent is a time for reflection on the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. One may commit some additional time each day in prayer, in meditation on scripture, and some may choose to engage in fasting. The whole idea of fasting is to abstain from something in order to use that time and energy to focus on what God is doing. One may fast for one meal or an entire day. One may choose to fast instead from media – time on in the computer/Facebook/texting or games on ones’ phone, etc. The purpose of all of these spiritual disciplines is help us FOCUS!
