Still Deciding What to Give Up for Lent

posted by Mary Booth -

I know it's Ash Wednesday, but I'm still deciding what to give up for Lent.  Here's a list I'm using to help me decide-

Fear of Failure?  Comfort Zone?  People Pleasing?  Lots of great choices!


When I was in college at Spring Hill (a Jesuit college), I was one of only a handful of Baptist students at a Catholic school.   Giving up something for Lent was not something I knew anything about.   But every Ash Wednesday the topic of conversation in the cafeteria was "What are you giving up?"    

I used to say "Catholicism" to see the shock on their faces.  Can you DO that?!  

In later years, I became Methodist and learned more about Lent.  My favorite years were the ones when I didn't give up a treat like chocolate, but instead focused on things worth giving up.  That's what I like about this list.
