The Season of Lent: Penance, Forgiveness and Renewal

For many Christians the idea of Lent as a period of self-denial and sacrifice is outdated and in need of revision; for others, guilt remains a fact of life and a motivation for repentance. The Religion Newswriters Association, a nonprofit organization promoting excellence in news coverage and public discourse about religion, offers background material on the tradition and practices of Lent, insight into efforts to re-imagine the season, research on how humans process feelings of guilt, and perspectives on some political dimensions of the quest to do more for neighbors in the face of ongoing hard times. For more insight, also explore a roundup of story ideas for Passover and Lent.
