"Baptists are increasingly observing Lent this year if Facebook is any indication, with news feeds filled with announcements of morning, afternoon and evening Ash Wednesday services today.
....
While long associated with Catholic and various liturgical Protestant denominations, its observance has spread in recent years to traditions known more for avoiding liturgical seasons than embracing them. Participating Baptists say they’ve discovered Lent deepens their relationship with Christ and heightens the anticipation of Easter."

That is good. I hope that they continue to discover the usefulness of the church's periods of fasting, preparing, and feasting.

Amazing. Hopefully, this experience will open the door to Orthodoxy.

Unfortunately they'll have to find it on their own... the article didn't mention Orthodoxy.

Many Baptists have found Orthodoxy via the internet.
Since we have this thread, it can be found via an internet search.
I wonder how many of our guests viewing this thread are Baptist.

To our Guests:

Please join and start a thread. We would be delighted to have you come and join us.
