Lent: A season of surrender.

Lent is the 40-day period (not counting Sundays) that spans from Ash Wednesday to Easter. But do you know how it originated and why there is a focus on fasting?

Brother Chris Lohrstorfer joined Rebecca Turner on The Metro to explain the historical and spiritual significance of the Lent season and how Christians and non-believers can benefit from disciplining the body over the next seven weeks.

There is no Easter Sunday without a Good Friday – no resurrection without a cross. And there is no cross without surrender.
