Lent for Evangelicals

I know some people in our evangelical environment get a bit freaked out by Lent. Here’s a link to a series of articles (just started) by an evangelical and why he embraces Lent. Full disclosure: I’ve only skimmed the first one, but this is a timely issue and he’s a trusted source in my book.

Mark D. Roberts on Lent

By the way, I'm giving up facebook and sweets. What about you?

Matthew 6:16-18
16"When you fast, do not look somber as the hypocrites do, for they disfigure their faces to show men they are fasting. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. 17But when you fast, put oil on your head and wash your face, 18so that it will not be obvious to men that you are fasting, but only to your Father , who is unseen; and your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.
