Lent Message Theme
LENT is known for Jesus' forty days into the wilderness to face hunger, and temptation is our focus for the coming weeks.
It's common to think that Lent is a personal journey that calls the believer to give up something such as 'chocolate' or a nice 'glass of wine'.
However, Lent can be an even deeper journey of pondering God's purpose for our lives. Have you asked yourself lately, how you might live well? Sally Mcfague reveals in 'Blessed Are the Consumers' that the power of consumption in our society and the self-focused internet is leaving our planet and one another in distress. The journey of Jesus in contrast and lifted up in Lent is the Spirit-filled call to 'kenosis' or 'self-emptying' . Yes, abundant life can actually be found by letting go of the preoccupation with oneself and insatiable need for more. Join us on this journey as we discover what is tantamount to living life well.
