the lenten time!

Hey all!
Well it's almost Ash Wednesday and I would be interested to hear what you and/or your church is doing for lent. Do you fast? Do you give alms? Anything special you want to do this lent? Do you even mark/celebrate lent?
My church is hosting the congregaton from the local Anglican church in a combined service (we went to theirs last year) and distribution of ashes. I'm also receving the baptism/confirmation/first Eucharist at the Easter vigil so I'm using lent to spiritually prepare for that.

My church does the typical Ash Wednesday service and I think we have subsequent lent services (this is my first lent/Easter with this church so I can't say for sure). I personally tend to use lent as a time to reflect on my relationship with God and where I have failed so that I can try to improve it. I think reflecting deeply on your sins now and then really helps you appreciate the redemption offered through Christ.

I'm not religious now, but I was raised Catholic, so I tend to do the no meat on fridays thing out of habit.

I am slowly learning certain "traditions" but not jumping into it too quickly as it will be too overwelming for me!

This year I am just trying to learn certain christ like character qualities like self control and patience by avoiding things I love A LOT biscuits, sweets and chocolate and doing some deep personal thinking!
