Here we are in Lent again – and we’re trying something different in our preaching! We’re going press conference style, with questions and answers. If you want to look ahead at the readings and send us questions, we will try and incorporate them into our sermons. I know there’s a question to start us:
The message of the Bible is often simple and clear. The challenge comes in interpreting how to concretely live out its simple message in our complex society: Love God, love your neighbor as yourself. The alien who resides with you shall be to you as the citizen among you; you shall love the alien as yourself; Be merciful, just as your God is merciful Forgive others when they hurt you. Wash one another’s feet. Serve others. Love your enemies. Pray for those who persecute you.
