Called to DEEP Healing
It is the fourth Sunday of Lent. Today, we are in the wilderness with the congregation of Israel, on the way to the Promised Land. The journey, however, is long and difficult. Along the way we have poisonous experiences that hurt and traumatize us. They prevent us from looking up and seeing the signs of new life among us. How can going through agony, discomfort, and grief in life be the path to deep healing? How can we look up and experience the deep healing God desires for all of us?

Called to DEEP Relationships
Today is the third Sunday of Lent. People have many different answers to being Christian and being a Christian community. The people in Corinth disagreed over this question with the Greeks promoting another and Jewish Christians another. Today, many people prefer a gospel that promises health, wealth, success and happiness. We tend to focus on preserving the church as an institution and shift our focus away from the gospel. However, the gospel is about the scandal of the cross. The apostle Paul talks about the cross as a stumbling-block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles. It is the wisdom of God.

Called to DEEP Relationship
Today is the first Sunday of Lent. The theme for today is called to deep relationship. In the book of Genesis, we see the rainbow as a sign to God—not us—to never to wipe out creation but to deepen the relationship with it. The gospel of Mark tells the story of Jesus emerging from the baptismal waters and having his identity as God’s beloved bestowed upon him. Our identity as God’s children is a gift, and one we deepen as we develop relationships with God and with our neighbour.
