There is much to celebrate in the Christian life; even in the midst of the challenges and sorrows that arise. In community life we face both the joys and sorrows together.
On Sunday, February 18 We will welcome guest teacher Dr. Bradley Jersak, author, speaker, principal of St. Stephen’s University. Come to share the good news of God’s Lavish Love in Lent.
We have now entered the forty days of Lent. This is the Great Fast – our preparation for the Mysteries of Holy Week. As we enter with Jesus into the journey of death and resurrection, I want us to start off on solid ground.
We are blessed with Psalm 25 which admonishes us to pray: “Show me your ways, O Lord, and teach me your paths. Lead me in your truth and teach me.” We hear that God teaches sinners gracious ways guiding the humble and lowly to do what is right. We too pray, “Remember not the sins of my youth and my transgressions;” but rather “Remember me according to your love and for the sake of your goodness.” Rather than being remembered or fixated on our own sins and shortcomings, we want to be remembered according to God’s love. When do we want to know and feel God’s love most – when we are being successful in our Christian life and doing amazing things – or when we fall short or make mistakes that hurt others and ourselves? I think we all really need to know God’s eternal love when we have messed up and come to acknowledge these.“Remember me according to your love”– this is some very solid ground for us to journey the dusty desert path of Lent. This is why I chose as the theme for Lent 2024 at St. Thomas ‘God’s Lavish Love in Lent’. - Rev. Lorie Martin
