Lent begins in the wilderness. The Spirit guides Jesus into the wilderness where he comes face to face with temptation and struggle. Yet, in his forty days of fasting, resisting, and wandering, Jesus is shaped and formed for ministry. Similarly, through the wilderness of Lent, we are invited to surrender to the wild leadings of the Spirit. We rarely enter the wilderness willingly, but hopefully through our wandering we remember who we are and whose we are. The wilderness can become sacred even if it remains dangerous. There is no wilderness space too harsh or threatening for God’s love.
This Lent, we welcome you to the journey.

Empty Altars: American Saints in a Cynical Age
Dr. Diana Butler Bass & Dr. Tripp Fuller
All around us, saints and heroes of both church and state are being taken down from public altars. Nearly everyone we once admired or held in esteem has failed us. But people always put statues back up—of who and to honor what? What “saints” can inspire us to address the hurts of our hearts, the brokenness of our communities, and the pressing issues of our times? Through stories of saints you know, and need to know, we’ll explore “sainthood” for an American, and global, future. For more on the topic go to https://theonlygodordainedsurvey.com/emptyaltars/
