One of Paul's favorite bands is The Classic Crime. One of their songs - Shades of Green - has the following lyrics
Gave up God for lent this year Stopped going to the church Learned to fight within myself The war beyond the words Found a way to reconcile Forget my fears and learn The inner price of peace From endless posturing and work
After listening to this song Paul posed the following question to the guys - can you give up God for Lent and get closer to him? What is Lent used for? Why is Lent important? Can we use the concept provided here to grow? What about deconstructing our own faith on a regular basis.
