easter is my favorite holiday.
as a christian, i love its symbols, i love its hope, i love its power. don’t get me wrong, i also love the colors, the eggs, the chocolates and the animals but sometimes i wish i belonged to a denomination which observed ash wednesday, lent and holy week. i still am maneuvering my way to carve out new “family traditions” and i want to make the weeks leading up to easter more meaningful.
on my way to work i passed st. luke’s lutheran church. i always try to read the marquee and today it spoke of lent, of self-denial, of sacrifice. so, office friend laura and i decided we’d share our last coke before we kicked pop to the curb during lent.
In the spirit of Lent, Robin and I have decided to give up Coke (A-Cola that is). For the next 40 days (starting tomorrow) we are requesting your support on our spiritual journey. If we are at lunch together or anywhere there might be temptation, please remind us sweetly of our commitment. Thank you for your time, support and energy. Peace be with you.
