Lenten Sermon and Study Series
Just turning on the news lets us know we are living in uncertain times. Economic instabilities, eruptions of violence, and natural catastrophes can alter the lives and landscapes of entire communities. Our individual lives are often just as unsteady: relationships can break, plans can falter, and confidence can fail. The reality is that in our fast-changing, unpredictable world there are few guarantees in life. It is those who are willing to embrace uncertainty and make the risky decision to follow Jesus who will reap the greatest rewards.
Embracing the Uncertain invites us this Lent to engage and wrestle with life’s uncertainties, not ignore them. We will focus on six post-Transfiguration, pre-Passion stories in the Gospels. Each of these stories are signposts in the gospel narrative, pointing at a world filled with uncertainty, but pointing us forward to a cross that can show us how to follow Jesus with courage, hope, and obedience.
