Lent and a conversation with God about parenting

The time of Lent connects us to humanity far removed from popular culture of the 21st century. In this fast changing digitally savvy hyper-connected world it is comforting to remember the religious calendars that mark Ramadan and Lent predate the ones we adhere to today. Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Teacher’s Day, World plant a tree day… these are fairly recent additions to humanity's outlook calendar.
