By giving up the usual Lenten expectations, Lent can cultivate trust in God.

This year’s Lenten Season has special significance for me. For the first time in my lifetime, Easter will fall on my birthday.

I am used to having April 24 to myself. Sharing the date this year gives me a singular opportunity to spend the weeks beforehand interweaving my physical life-journey with my Lenten spirituality

So how can that play out?
