Joey and I are starting the Seasoning Lent series this Sunday. Seasoning Lent was written by The Church Health Center's Rev. Stacy Smith. It is an eight week program of devotionals and recipes.
You can find the entire program here in the Church Health Reader. Here's an excerpt from Seasoning Lent that sums up what we will be doing:
"So for this season of Lent, we invite you on a journey of discipline that asks you to both “take up” and “give up.” We will take up the practice of cooking and teach you new ways to create healthy, filling and tasty foods that feed both our bodies and our spirits. But we will also ask you to give up some of the more common ingredients and cooking practices that make our foods less healthy than they should be. We will enjoy the abundance of God’s creation while taking seriously our responsibility to care for it. And we will practice new spiritual disciplines, just as generations of Christians have done during the season of Lent."
I can't think of a better time or way to begin sharpening us!
