Four in a six-week series called Reversal and Restoration. We continue to explore how the promises of God are fulfilled in the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus through the lens of the Gospel of Luke. Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of a new journey for us as Christians, as followers of Jesus, because it is the start of the season of Lent. Lent is a time for refocusing and reprioritizing our lives and our relationship with Jesus. It also means taking time to deeply reflect on what it means to be a disciple of Jesus, to be a part of the gathered community which helps to expand Jesus’ table of love, hope and grace.
This series continues to explore how the promises of God are fulfilled in the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus through the lens of the Gospel of Luke. Yet those promises are not always what we expect or think that we need. Instead, Jesus’ mission and ministry brings with it controversy, reversal, and confusion. Ultimately, his mission prepares his disciples including us to become apostles sharing the Good News of love and grace to ALL people in both word and deed.
