I’ve Given Up Not Writing for Lent

By Martha Henry

I’ve given up not writing for Lent. I haven’t written consistently for months, so this is a sacrifice. I intend to not not write religiously for the next 40 days. 

I grew up going to an Episcopal church. When Lent began, we kids were handed cardboard boxes to fill with coins by Easter. The boxes were the same size as a box of animal crackers. On Easter, there was a moment in the service when the kids came forward with their Lent boxes
