My little Lent, Advent, was so dark and so penitential that my actual Lent cannot help but to be lighter. From the dawn of the Christian year until now I have been keeping the observance of a holy Lent, by self-examination and repentance; by prayer, fasting, and self-denial; and by reading and meditating on God's holy Word. (BCP)
What more can I do?
There is always room for more self-denial! I have so much, do so much, want so much.
Yet this is a year of Sabbath for me, a personal and professional Yovel (Jubilee).
How can sabbath-keeping and Lenten discipline co-exist?
