Lenten Quotes, Day 2

The concept of a church calendar is certainly rooted in biblical principles (especially the fact that God gave Israel a calendar to commemorate his work on their behalf) and the pattern of the church’s calendar is drawn from the core of the biblical narrative, focused on the life of Jesus. But the way the calendar is observed is left to the prudence and practical needs of God’s people. Thus, when it comes to observance of the season of Lent, we are free to modify and customize the church’s traditions to better reflect the great truths of the Reformed faith. The traditional calendar  is always subject to reshaping in light of Scripture and local circumstances. –Rich Lusk

The only reason for fasting from anything in God’s good creation is to make us hunger for God himself more deeply. –Rich Lusk
