5th Day of Lent – Denying some of the essentials

Day 5:


“In the end, Lent is about denying ourselves some of the essentials of everyday life in order to focus on the reality that we depend upon God for life itself.” (Dawn, p23)

In what ways does this understanding differ from the commonly held view of Lent?
