It was an interesting ride of Lent. I appartently spend a lot of time in thrift stores looking for cheap clothes, it was a great practice!

I am giving up self-denial for lent. emoticon
Seriously, being a new parent with the sleep deprivation it entails, I don't have the brain power to maintain giving up anything.
I try to do communication fasts where I turn off all phones, computers, etc. spend the AM in silence and the afternoon on relationships with my wife and family. This has been a monthly sabbath practice that has been an excellent centering point for us.
Being part of the Quakers, lent was a fairly unknown concept before Church History classes. I now understand the concept and how it developed as part of the church calendar and membership practices.
I am interested to hear how lenten disciplines are practiced and spoken about in your traditions. Can you point me to some resources?

Thanks

Our congregation did an 8-day Daniel Fast before the national (U.S.) elections. I'll be returning to the Daniel Fast. Haven't decided when or for how long, though. Also, looking for a fast partner.
