Our focus during these 40 days of Lent will be on the Upside Down Kingdom. We’ve been called to live in a way that may not always fit in with the culture around us. Amongst many things, living this way can take a lot of strength, deep roots, and a firm commitment.
So, we begin this journey looking at the Bible story that helps us understand how Jesus found the strength and commitment to live in this counter-cultural way.
Temptations all around him those 40 days in the wilderness, we read how Jesus dug deep to keep his focus on God’s call in his life. My hope is that the example of Jesus will give us strength and determination for our own journeys that are filled with temptations.
This weekend, we’re pleased to welcome Eric Hansen into church membership. Eric already feels like part of the church family and sings regularly in our church choir.
Spring forward this Sunday morning! More daylight in the evenings!
“I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year ‘give me light that I may walk safely into the night.’ But the man who stood at the gate of the year said ‘put your hand in the hand of God and that will be better than light and safer than a known way.’ So I put my hand in the hand of God and walked gently into the night.”
