Back by Popular Demand: Lenten Readings from Me-Ville

This year, thanks to popular demand (I demanded it), I'll be posting daily excerpts from my book Deliver Us from Me-Ville as a touchpoint for each day of Lent. Last year I did this in conjunction with a church near me that was reading the book as a communal Lenten exercise. It seemed to work well for them; maybe it'll serve you similarly this year. Here's the reading plan that church came up with for the book:
