The Weekend and Lent

So… what have I been up to this weekend? Well, not a whole lot really. On Friday evening, I didn’t do much. On Saturday, I didn’t do much. Yesterday, I went to Church, then came back for lunch, then went to church again in the evening. Then had dinner with Philippa, and we watched a couple of episodes of Family Guy. Ok so I did a bit more stuff, but none of it is interesting… it’s all fairly boring! (But what else did you expect from my blog, really?)

Anyway. Lent. I don’t usually give stuff up for lent. This is for a variety of reasons… I think the point of lent (in the Christian sense) is that in giving something you like up, you spend more time on God. It’s more complicated than that, but I think in general the whole “spending more time on God” thing is a key factor 😉 So, I’ve decided to do a couple of things: (1) — as a token effort of giving stuff up, I’ve decided to give up eating biscuits at work! That will be more tough than it sounds but it’s not like I’m giving up something major like tea, caffeine, or chocolate… (2) in the evenings, I’ve decided to spend the time when I have a hot chocolate praying / reading the Bible (or other Christian book — see Dawkins’ God, below). I’m always saying I need to read more (I’ve got a lot of books I’d like to read again, just never seem to get around to it). So this is the ideal opportunity! And it’s working pretty well so far.

So, that’s my take on what I’m doing for lent… and that’s also all for now! Ciaio! (or chow, or however you spell it).
