Happy Friday friends! In December, I shared a 2-minute informative Advent video. While I don't want to preach to you, I do want to educate you. Whether or not you're a Christian, your life is likely affected by the seasons of the church (I'm in America and referring to our majority religion, Christian churches) in some way.
I have a sneaking suspicion that many of the people celebrating FAT TUESDAY next week are not doing it in preparation for starting a fast. Plus, rumor has it that the Mardi Gras celebration in New Orleans is more of a secular event, gasp ;)
If you live in my area of NWPA, join me on Tuesday at Good Hope Lutheran Church for a free FAT TUESDAY dinner. There's something about the pancakes, eggs & sausage that they serve all day that is way more delicious than any breakfast foods I make! Yum! Leave a message if you want more info. They're not gonna preach to you, just feed you :)
Without further ado, here's your 2-minute crash course on Lent.
I've never fasted for Lent, I'm thinking about it... I'll let you know what I decide! I'm also gonna write an informative Catholic versus Lutheran post... simply because I was asked this recently and I'm the world's worst conversationalist! I said something like: "uh, Lutherans ummm don't pray to Mary or confess to their Pastor." Major hand slap to head! I like to think, reflect, write, think some more and THEN discuss... certainly counter productive in many ways :)
