Lent invites us to find the boundaries of our maps and enter the wilderness in faith. And so we begin.
Beginning March 6 (Ash Wednesday) and culminating on April 21 (Easter), GC students, faculty and staff will provide weekday reflections based on the upcoming Sunday’s lectionary Scripture passages and reflect on the theme: “Blessed Hunger, Holy Feast.” This year we will also revisit some devotions from previous Lenten seasons, but which are still relevant to this year’s Scriptures and themes.
In these days, the Good News of Jesus Christ is this: LOVE prevails.
The way that God loves us and grants us grace is reckless.
Look for God’s gates in society’s walls today. For God is our Salvation—our way to right relationships. And because Jesus is the cornerstone of every gate, walk through Lent in rejoicing.
I believe that our calling as Christians is to live out the message of the Gospel, which is still Good News to a troubled world.
Let us not despair, knowing that Christ has overcome the world, and has paved the way for us to encounter the spirit of the Living God. Praise be to God!
May the Psalm provide comfort in knowing our lives in the hand of God and this Holy Week be filled with God’s Shalom.
Showing up. Being present. Blessed is the one who comes. Blessed is the one who came, comes and continues to be present with us.
Jesus is a King. But he was also human, and in that humanity, humble and self-sacrificing.
