I was at a luncheon with a colleague from work who turned away a delicious peach tart with the words "I gave up sweets for Lent." She is a member of the Presbyterian Church in Canada, which as far as I can tell is analogous to the liberal PCUSA. I wonder if celebrating Lent is the norm in the Presbyterian Church in Canada? Is Lent celebrated in any conservative Presbyterian or Reformed denominations? It all sounds very romish to me.
