Lent 2016

This Lenten series is drawn from Luke’s account of our Lord’s Passion. Each week, a different section of the Gospel is read; and each week, Luke will take us to a different place—the Places of the Passion. However, the focus will not be on those physical places. Instead, throughout the series, the hearer is invited to gaze in wonder on the spiritual work that our Lord does in those places. Jesus will share His strength in our times of weakness. When Jesus enters a place, He never leaves it as He found it. The most troubling places in our lives become the most amazing places of God’s grace when Jesus visits them. Week after week, hearers will enter the places of the Passion, only to discover their Lord...waiting for them...willing to share with them a love that was set in place before the foundations of the world.
