Lent: Season of Rebellion
Esau McCaulley (Wheaton College / The New York Times) discusses the Christian practice of Lent—a collective wisdom, passed down through generations of Jesus followers, as well as a spiritual rebellion against mainstream American culture. He construes Lent as a season of repentance and grace; he points out the justice practices of Lent; he walks through a Christian understanding of death, and the beautiful practice of stripping the altars on Maundy Thursday; and he’s emphatic about how it’s a guided season of pursuing the grace to find (or perhaps return) to yourself as God has called you to be.
Our purpose is to help people envision and pursue lives worthy of our humanity. We see theology as a way of life seeking understanding. Our work takes its shape in research, teaching, and public engagement expressed through two initiatives: Christ & Flourishing & Life Worth Living.
