Carl Trueman gets cranky about Lent. I disagree with him, but liked this:
"My commitment to Christian liberty means that I certainly would not regard it as sinful in itself for them to do so [observe Lent]; but that same commitment also means that I object most strongly to anybody trying to argue that it should be a normative practice for Christians, to impose it on their congregations, or to claim that it confers benefits unavailable elsewhere."
