Today is Fat Tuesday, Mardi Gras Day!

Tomorrow is the beginning of many individual’s Lenten Journey. Check out Terri’s (from Cloaked Monk’ Blog) thought-provoking idea for a meaningful and different approach to Lent this year!

I am going to try to do a Lenten discipline of reading scripture and offering a creative response. The creative response will likely be a short form poem, but who knows! I may get really wild.You are welcome to join the journey. This is not a challenge, but it is a resource to prompt your own journey. If you would like me to list your blog here, I am happy to do so. Just drop a note into the comments.

The scripture readings are the second tab on this blog or  http://cloakedmonk.com/lenten-haiku-journey/ .

Shalom,

Terri

Lent

    My husband and his family come from a Catholic tradition — his brother and wife give up wine for lent very year. As a child, hubby usually gave up things like chocolate or some other food he liked.
    As a child growing up, we didn’t observe lent, but always ate pancakes on shrove (pancake) tuesday.
    I really respect those who embrace spiritually and include lent in their practice. I will enjoy following you on your journey.

    Becca, Fabulous idea. As a Catholic, I am quite compelled to join in with you as long as short term memory doesn’t kick in, lol! I think I will do okay though. Blessings, Terri

    • becca givens says:

      My thoughts exactly, Terri … short term memory will be my greatest challenge to follow through! :D First, I must scout out some King Cake before the night’s end!!

      • terri0729 says:

        LOL, bites doesn’t it! Don’t know what King Cake is but any kind of cake sounds good right now! hugs, T~

        • becca givens says:

          I am from South Louisiana … so King Cake is a big deal to the taste buds! :D King Cake is a tradition during the Mardi Gras season celebration … from Little Epiphany (Twelfth Night) through Fat Tuesday, which is Mardi Gras Day = Today! It now comes in a variety of variations, but started out cinnamon based. YUM! The shortened version of the story! LOL

  40. I love to be part of this. I don’t know exactly what Lent means, but I think you will explain that to me.

    • becca givens says:

      Lent is the Christian season of preparation before Easter. In Western Christianity, Ash Wednesday marks the first day, or the start of the season of Lent, which begins 40 days prior to Easter (Sundays are not included in the count).
      Lent is a time when many Christians prepare for Easter by observing a period of fasting, repentance, moderation and spiritual discipline. The purpose is to set aside time for reflection on Jesus Christ – his suffering and his sacrifice, his life, death, burial and resurrection.
