Feed your soul and head for Lent!

February 21, 2007

First of all, go check out Pisco’s inaugural Anglican Carnival: Repentance to get some good Lenten Head food on this first day of Lent and Ash Wednesday. He’s linked to some reflections on the topic (my Repentance for Lentance post below is linked!), and it’s a good way to get in on the Lenten action. And after you read some of the reflections, start thinking up some of your own, cuz I’m hosting the starting the first Wednesday in March, and I’ll need posts! TOPIC: Waiting (Nuthin like being told what to do first thing in the AM, huh?)

Update/Correction: MIKE is hosting next week. Topic: REFRAINING

And remember – NO MEAT. FAST! (eat cereal for dinner or yogurt or toast! This is for me as much as for you!)

Next, the indomitable Ann+ and her colleague Kay (EfM Mentor extraordinaire) are running an online Lenten Course called Theology Pub. It’s Theological Reflection for Lent – talk about God, life and other stuff with people from around the country. Videos will be used as discussion starts – there is a discussion board, and an optional “live” chat session on Tuesday evenings, 7:00pm Mountain Time.

It starts today – registration is FREE!!! and Ann is coordinating registration. Email me at beezerama32 at yahoo dot com, and I’ll forward you Ann+’s contact information if you are interested in signing up. (I’m signed up!!)

    Sure, plug your own hosting, but skip right over me! Next week’s topic: Refraining.

    HMPH…

    I have to pick a topic too????? I’m now filled with ANXIETY!!!!!

    How about – WAITING? Not my favorite phrase of the day, but, perhaps worth reflecting on?

    No meat – good idea – meat production uses much more energy than plant production.

    So what do those of us who are already vegetarian supposed to do? 😉 Actually, I am fasting in a different way. I did give up meat (at least partially) for the reason Ann gives, as well as my health and the health of the animals. It is amazing how much impact modern methods of raising meat for our consumption has on our fragile earth.
