An Ash Wednesday Thread

Today is Ash Wednesday,

the beginning of the Christian season of Lent. In Lent, we reflect on our mortality. We also reflect on the addictions, bad habits, or coping mechanisms that keep us from the Divine Love of God. In that reflection, many choose to fast from those things.

This Lent, I’m inviting you to add a practice: grab a copy of The Book of Waking Up: Experiencing the Divine Love That Reorders a Life and read a little every day (perhaps with a friend).

Then, answer this question below: Are you fasting this Lent, and if so, from what?
