Lent for Unitarian Universalists
March 17 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
The Rev. Brian Mason
Lent can be for UUs too. Traditionally, Lent is a time of repentance, fasting, and anticipation; a period of self-examination and reflection. It lasts 40 days, mirroring the time Jesus spent in the wilderness. Or, put another way, the time he took a hardcore spiritual retreat in the boondocks. In an age characterized by isolation, distraction, and consumption, a moment of quiet and forbearance may hold the key to more cheerful hearts.
