Soooo if you haven’t noticed yet, I’m a Christian.
Greek Orthodox to be exact.
I don’t play exclusively Christian music, but I don’t shy away from putting the G-word in my songs either. Why should I? He’s the one who’s making me sing 😉 I’d like to say a few things about Lent.
Just some observations about observing The Great Lent. Don’t worry, this isn’t preachy. I’m not qualified to preach!
I just figured I’d see what kind of ideas other people have about it.
This is the first year I’ve ever tried to participate. I say tried because I don’t feel like I’ve done a very good job. I’m vegan and I don’t drink, so abstaining from animal products and wine is easy, but olive oil? And wait, on what days do I skip meals? And wait, how do I keep from not ripping someones head off when I’m irritable because I’m hungry? Ohhh… PRAYER….
So yeah, fasting is hard. I’m not going to go into detail about what you are and aren’t supposed to do, because I don’t have time, but feel free to ask my buddy, Google. He knows lots. Lent is the time when we are supposed to cleanse ourselves physically and spiritually so that we’re prepared to celebrate Easter. What I see around is a lot of “I’m giving up chocolate” and “Fish fry Friday!” and not so much pentence or almsgiving..
My point of bringing it up was to basically see what other people think and get a conversation going. Thoughts?
I made that word up.
I am officially out of time(back to work).
Long story short:
Being a single parent is not a disease. We are capable of having lives. Dating. Working. Getting an education.
Let’s stop treating single moms and dads like they’re romantically disabled, shall we?
