We ended our last series by affirming the notion within Scriptures that we do not join the work of God alone. God has invited us to participate with Him as a body, a community of faith. Together, we are the light of the world, a city on a hill. For the next six weeks, acknowledging that we are a part of a much larger community of faith, we will join our brothers around the world in contemplating the same texts together. This is the season of Lent for Christians from all different traditions. So we will center our thoughts on this time of repentance, and preparation for the death and resurrection of Jesus.
