The First Sunday in Lent
(The full text of Jesse’s sermon is not available. The following notes are intended to provide a general sense of it.)
Lent is a time for bearing witness to the pain of others. In so doing, we come home to our own wholeness and to the Christ within, and the path of vulnerability becomes a Lenten practice.
Lent is a time to practice our dying, a time when we can let go of being victims and take full responsibility for our lives. As this happens, we may be called to let go of call and thus to be open to the next call.
