Here are two articles from The Federalist which speak of different viewpoints about the season of Lent.
The first, from Rev. Todd Peperkorn entitled “Why Lent Should Matter to Everyone.”
The second, from Rev. Brian Lee is “Repent of Lent: How Spiritual Discplines Can Be Bad for Your Soul.”
You read them and give some thought as to your own point of view. Obviously, I fall into Peperkorn’s camp but you may be different.
