During the six weeks of Lent, the Church has historically reflected on the meaning of Jesus’ death and resurrection for our lives. Like the caterpillar who weaves a cocoon and is transformed into a butterfly, followers of Jesus must follow this death to life pattern in their everyday lives. During Lent, we will consider the ways in which God is inviting each of us to die and come alive in Jesus in six specific areas of life.
My old self has been crucified with Christ.It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
Galatians 2:20 (NLT)
Dying to sin and coming alive to God.
Dying to consumerism and coming alive to generosity.
Dying to kingdoms of this world and coming alive to the Kingdom of God.
Dying to exclusivity and coming alive to inclusivity.
Dying to isolation and coming alive to the beloved community.
Dying to indifference and coming alive to compassion.
