The season of Lent is the 40 days leading up to the celebration of Easter.
It is a time that Christians around the world use to reflect on the state of their discipleship through fasting, Bible study, prayer and special worship gatherings (such as Ash Wednesday).
During Lent, wrote Frederick Buechner, Christians endeavor "to hear something not only of who you are but of both what you are becoming and what you are failing to become."
