Most people think of Lent as a Christian tradition, but it has
its parallels in many other spiritual paths. Used well, it
functions nicely as a "course correction maneuver" to give each of
us an opportunity to see where we are on our journey compared to
where we could be.
Unfortunately, many Christians have made Lent a negative experience. There may be those who picture Santa Claus or the Nativity when they think of Christmas, but when I think of Lent, I picture an old lady waving her finger at a child while trying to live in the 19th century. That's the problem.
