I kept telling the pastors each week during Lent that it was the best desert season I’ve ever encountered! I have actively observed the traditional fast for a few years and this one moved me the most. It was amazing. Without going into specifics, my Lenten disciplines generally involved sacrificing various things—not so much adding more into my life. And it benefited me greatly. I was really freed up to relate to my friends and loved ones better mainly I eliminated a lot of the stuff that was blocking my path to them.
