Podcast: On Lent, with Steven Wedgeworth

Mere FidelityThis week on Mere Fidelity, Derek, Matt, and I are joined by our friend Steven Wedgeworth for a discussion of the subject of Lent, developing out of a Twitter discussion for which Keith Miller is responsible. Should we celebrate Lent? What motivates those evangelicals who are turning to Lenten practices? Is there theological justification for opposing its practice?

You can also follow the podcast on iTunes, or using this RSS feed. Listen to past episodes on Soundcloud and on this page on my blog.

    Thank, Alistair. I enjoyed the back and forth in this episode. It would have been nice if you had more space to develop your biblical theology of maturity and what it means for rituals of the church.

    Wedgeworth’s minimalist (pretty strong regulative) view seems sterile, but it is easy for churches to start binding consciences inappropriately.
