We are well into the season of Lent and Easter is not too far away. Especially in our busy world with all kinds of worldly noise distracting us from the importantSeasons Greetings aspects of life, it’s good that we have religious seasons. Oddly enough, Christmas wasn’t that long ago but the Christmas season is becoming so commercialized and political that many have a hard time finding peace and true spiritual meaning in the season. The Easter season gives us another chance at it without so much commercialization. Yet, the distractions and busyness of life can make the season go by without us attaching much significance to it. Indeed, we have to make conscious effort to come out of the Easter season a better person than we went into it. Many people give something up for Lent as a means of self-discipline. Others perform additional righteous acts during Lent. Whatever we choose and regardless of our denomination, it’s a good time to reflect on our faith-journey and make some changes. Even if we didn’t start at the beginning of Lent, it’s never too late to start. Furthermore, personal spiritual inventory is not something that we should only do at Christmas and Easter.
