In Rachel’s latest Trivia Challenge, she quizzes Sarah, Erin, and Bri on all things Lenten.
What does the word “Lent” actually mean? How and where do our Lenten observances tie in with Scripture and Christian history? What made Lenten fasts in the Middle Ages so hardcore? How do Lutheran, Catholic, and Orthodox attitudes and practices differ today? Perhaps most intriguingly: what happens when one of the Ladies turns around and stumps Rachel?
Play along at home and learn more about this reflective, penitential season.
