What is Lent?

Lent is a series of days, typically celebrated between Ash Wednesday and Easter — a period of 40 days plus 6 Sundays. It is celebrated by a number of Christian groups, including Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Lutheran, Calvinist, and Anglican.

The concept of honoring our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is a wonderful idea. Many Christians celebrate Lent; many others do not.

For those who do, the celebration of Lent often involves fasting from food or some other desirable thing. You hear about people "giving up something for Lent" such as drinking a favorite drink, eating desert, or something of the kind.

The idea behind giving something up should be denying ourselves of something pleasurable and turning our thoughts to God. We as Christians should be looking forward to the celebration of Good Friday, when Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins, and Easter Sunday, when Christ rose victorious from the dead.

So whether you celebrate Lent or not, let's respect those who do and let's honor our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
