Lent Daily Reflections from Wineskins

What do you think of Lent. Overall I think it’s a good practice, though it seems weird to do in a community that is not doing it and in some cases is against it. Here is a comment from a Wineskins reader I post with his permission.

I agree with a lot of things coming from wineskins, but lent?  I don’t see where it’s part of a New Testament culture to encourage time sensitive religious rites like lent.  I appreciate your concern, but could you spend your efforts and resources keeping us off the track of secular thinking and focus? Try not to drag us into the same ol’ pool of habits and thinking that bind us to ceremony and ritualistic traditions – that’s not the wineskins I started reading 10 years ago (or longer!)
just a thought.

What do you think?
