Why Lent?

Thanks to Jared, who turned me onto this video that explains Lent in a deep yet concise way. This is The Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, reflecting on Lent. I'm still not doing Lent, but since I opined about it a few weeks ago I figured I'd post this here.

Also, this guy has got some amazing eyebrows! I'd recommend clicking on the video, going to the YouTube page itself, and watching them more in-depth in HD. Incredible...

That's a great video. And yes, wicked eyebrows!

Coincidentally, I just read a good concise review of the entire Lenten season in Relevant Magazine. Here's a link to a digital copy of the magazine, the article is on p. 26: http://www.mygazines.com/issue/353

Yeah, he definitely has the best eyebrows EVER.

And does a good job as Archbishop too.

But it's the eyebrows that I really like. :-)

Thanks for the heads up on this and the YouTube channel Philip. And you're right about the eyebrows. They look like boomerangs.
