Episode 21: 1st and 2nd Sunday of Lent

We continue into the 2nd Sunday of Lent with a little backtrack to the 1st Sunday courtesy of Rev. Andy Kort’s lovely sermon found here as episode 8. He reminds us that our time in Lent is a chance to affirm our baptismal identity in Jesus Christ.

“Jesus did not begin to be loved at the moment of his baptism, nor did he cease to be loved when his baptism became a memory. Baptism simply named the reality of his existing and unending belovedness.” ― Rachel Held Evans, Searching for Sunday: Loving, Leaving, and Finding the Church

Rev. Brian Coulter provides a reflection on Philippians 3:17-4:1

I have often told you of them,
and now I tell you even with tears.
Their end is destruction;
their god is the belly;
and their glory is in their shame;

their minds are set on earthly things.

“Our citizenship is NOT in the state of normal, our citizenship belongs somewhere else, our citizenship belongs to someone else, we are transformed citizens, never to be conformed to the world.”
