What is the point of Lent? If prayer and reading and self-denial are worth doing at this time of year, perhaps we should be doing them all the year round!
Christianity is not a blueprint for repression but for joy: for a life of fulfilment beyond our wildest dreams. Jesus said `I have come that you may have life and have it to the full'.
In short chapters suitable for individual reading or group study, and questions for meditation and reflection, Sheila Cassidy considers the word `LENT' as an acronym for what it really means to live as a Christian today:
L is for LOVE
E is for EMPATHY
N is quite simply for NO!
T is for THANK YOU GOD
A unique and refreshing addition to the DLT's acclaimed library of Lent courses.
Sheila Cassidy's honest and wise books on suffering and healing have made her one of the UK's best-loved and most popular writers on pastoral care and personal growth. She is widely known for her work in the hospice movement, and as a young doctor who survived torture for daring to give medical care to an opponent of the Pinochet regime in Chile.
