Or does it — for Christians, at least — mean something entirely different: self-sacrifice, devotion and seeking first the kingdom of God (Matt. 6:33)?
This Lent, The Lutheran Witness explores some of the elements that make up the Bible’s counter-cultural vision for “the good life,” including prayer, fasting, devotion, piety and trusting in God’s Word.
Among the highlights in this issue are Dr. Russell P. Dawn’s explanation of two commonly misunderstood theological terms (“Piety vs. Pietism”) and the Rev. Bryan Wolfmueller’s pastoral counsel to people confused about when (and when not) to listen to their emotions (“More Than a Feeling”).
