We begin Lent in the wilderness, because it is in our wilderness that Christ most closely declares, I walk with you … Christ too has wandered in the wilderness, and his victory is our victory, for neither death nor evil shall overcome.
A people of faith, our call to share in community with one another is not just about loving thy neighbor. Jesus says that our call as people of faith is to share as family with one another. We mourn together, rejoice together, weep together, and laugh together. This is not just our church, this is our family.
