New to Lent?

I am no expert at Lent.  If you are looking to me to direct you into “proper” Lenten observance, I suspect that you will be disappointed. I am a bit of a hack at Lent.  But I do know a little about following Jesus.

Neglecting Lent will not make Jesus love us any less.  Doing Lent cannot make Jesus love us more, but it just might help us to know Jesus and Love him more – which would be worth while.

I have been following some of Jon Swanton’s bloggings and thoughts about following Jesus.  I enjoy his writing.  He is realistic, hard-hitting, loving kind and gentle.  He wrote a book a couple of years ago called Lent for Non-Lent People: “33 things to give up for Lent” and other readings. I like the book and wish that I had written it.  If you are intrigued by Lent and want to go deeper, that book might be a good way to move forward.

His post, 33 things to give up for Lent is also a way to move forward.

Lent for Non-Lent People: “33 things to give up for Lent” and other readings  is available through various channels.  I know that there is a version available for use on various readers, i.e. Kindle, etc. if you are so inclined.

Amazon has it listed, as does The Book Depository
