I received an e-mail this week from someone asking me about ideas for how to kick off Lent in a meaningful way with family devotion type activities. I admit, I was at a loss.
I am not sure I have ever broken down my denominational mutt-hood before, but I was basically unchurched as a child, a catholic school student from 7th-12th grade, while attending a baptist youth group as an adolescent. I was nondenominational in my twenties and am now Presbyterian.
As a result, I am not always the best resource for 'tradition' type questions. We use Resurrection Eggs in the two weeks before Easter, but I haven't introduced the concept of Ash Wednesday or Lent yet.
I know for a fact that many readers of this blog have GREAT ideas. So, would you mind sharing? Outside of your church activities, how do you observe Lent as a family?
