Last year Rachel and I gave up meat for Lent. She never went back, remaining vegetarian ever since.
This year I have decided I will be reading Henri Nouwen during Lent. I’ve read a few of Nouwen’s books already, but it has been some time ago. In one of the classes I took at Perkins School of Youth Ministry the leader for the week was John “Bear” Losey of Praxis Training. John lead a fantastic set of sessions under the heading of “Doing Stuff on Purpose.”
During one of these sessions, he referred to a Nouwen book on prayer as beginning with the statement “Prayer is difficult.”
I will plan to read and reflect on one of Nouwen’s books per week of Lent.
What are you planning in the way of a Lenten Discipline?
