This Lent, experience the transformation that comes about when we gather amid community.

As Jesus’ journey leads to Jerusalem, he tells his disciples three times about his coming death and resurrection (Matt. 16:21-23; 17:22-23; 20:17-19). Not surprisingly, they are greatly disturbed by this news. They have left everything to follow this teacher. They know that their own fate is bound up with that of their Savior and Lord.
If we are to be faithful disciples of the crucified and risen Lord, we too must face this consequence of our faith. Following Jesus means taking up the cross. As Jesus taught, “those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake will find it” (Matt. 16:25). This is the nature of our Lenten journey, the deep and costly calling of the gospel.
This year during the 40 days of Lent we will ponder this paradox and wrestle with these questions:
  1. What do we need to give up in order to take up the life of discipleship?
  2. What do we need to confess and lament in order to move toward reconciliation with God and one another?
