In the weeks leading up to Easter, I'll be exploring the following themes:
Week 1, Luke 4:1-14 -- the temptations that derail a community in mission
Week 2, Luke 13:31-35 -- the practice of compassion in offering and receiving the unwelcome gift
Week 3, John 4:5-42 -- the Samaritan woman at the well and the ways we personally confuse worship on ‘the' mountain of our personal understanding with worship of the living God.
Week 4, John 9:1-41 -- the healing of the man born blind and the communal patterns of resisting the work of God among us
Week 5, John 11:1-14 -- the raising of Lazarus as the death blow to all that separates us from God and one another and the potential rise into new life
Week 6, Luke 15:1-32 -- Palm/Passion Sunday on the necessary crucifixion of reconciliation
