Is Lent Enough?

by Vinita Hampton Wright

Lent is the season for truth-telling and repentance. Vinita Hampton Wright asks, “Is 40 days time enough for us to know our truth and speak it? Is Lent long enough for our slow understanding; is it deep enough for our bottomless want?” The good news is—yes! It is enough.
