Lent
#1
Do you observe the season?
---


At that time Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert
to be tempted by the devil.
He fasted for forty days and forty nights,
and afterwards he was hungry.
The tempter approached and said to him,
“If you are the Son of God,
command that these stones become loaves of bread.”
He said in reply,
“It is written:
One does not live on bread alone,
but on every word that comes forth
from the mouth of God.”

Then the devil took him to the holy city,
and made him stand on the parapet of the temple,
and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down.
For it is written:
He will command his angels concerning you
and with their hands they will support you,
lest you dash your foot against a stone.”
Jesus answered him,
“Again it is written,
You shall not put the Lord, your God, to the test.”
Then the devil took him up to a very high mountain,
and showed him all the kingdoms of the world in their magnificence,
and he said to him, "All these I shall give to you,
if you will prostrate yourself and worship me.”
At this, Jesus said to him,
“Get away, Satan!
It is written:
The Lord, your God, shall you worship
and him alone shall you serve.”

Then the devil left him and, behold,
angels came and ministered to him.
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Well here in Sweden the beginning of Lent coincides with a unique holiday, Ostbågens day.

So my advice to those that wish to observe both is 'Eat Fast'.

More seriously, while I have never done fasting, (it was never a thing with us Lutherans). Easter/Lent has always been for me the 'Big Holiday Season' as a Christian.

This one looks like a good one to add to the regular movies we watch during Lent. I'm downloading the nowvideo.sx link right now.

HE HAS RISEN

…and she saw two angels in white sitting, one at the head and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus had been lying. And they said to her, "Woman, why are you weeping?" She said to them, "Because they have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid Him." When she had said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, and did not know that it was Jesus.…

Yes, He has. We will, too.

Here's a tidbit of secular info indicating Asia may become "Christendom" before too much longer:

I have not clicked your link yet but it is my belief that Chinese Christian missionaries will one day travel to North & South America and to Europe to spread the word of our lord.

Prtrick, could you please copy and past this into the Chinese Christian thread, right here?

But keep in mind that percentages, and total numbers, and two different things. For instance, China has over 1.3 billion citizens, and the US has around 333 million, less than a fourth total population.
