It all started with a post on my Facebook that said,
“So I may not be catholic (or a theist at all)
but I see Lent as the opposite of Christmas.
So what should I give up this year?”
Little did I know when I posted what I thought was kinda funny and would get responses like “cussing”, “drinking soda”, and the obvious request to give up my sports obsession of “soccer”, that I would be asked to give up my non-belief.
WHAT? How do you give up a “non-belief”???? Well you don’t but as suggested I can change what you do and immerse yourself in a culture and lifestyle that is different from your own because of the belief/non-belief system.
So I am an Atheist and I am giving up Atheism for Lent. From Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday I will immerse myself in the Christian culture and lifestyle. I won’t be frequenting my Atheist groups online, I won’t be posting on Facebook about the hypocrisy of the Bible and the people who follow it. What I will be doing is reading the bible, participating in bible study, actively praying (including before meals), and the biggest one of all, I won’t be sleeping in on Sundays because I will be going to church.
I will be using this blog to keep track of my adventure be it good or bad or in between.
