    In today’s sermon we will see that in a very real sense, Lent is about understanding the 51st Psalm of David and seeing ourselves in the place of the Psalmist.

    I am giving up Lent for Lent this year, at least the way the Church typically does Lent. Lord is not interested in what I give up for just 40 days and return to it. He is interested in me giving up the sins in my life which will make Easter more joyous

    TITLE: GIVING UP LENT FOR LENT SCRIPTURE: ST LUKE 9:22-24 / II CORINTHIANS 13:5-6 Although Easter is the most significant of the Christian holidays it does not enjoy the kind of enthusiastic fanfare afforded Christmas or even Thanksgiving. Lent is a forty-day period before Easter. It begins on ...read more

    A sermon for the start of Lent 2021

    I think this is the point where I am supposed to talk about Lent being a penitential time, and time for giving things up, but that seems patent nonsense in 2021. In the last eleven months we have given up more than we ever wished for longer than we would have wished. And we have lost some people ...read more

    Four reasons why the church of Jesus Christ should have nothing to do with Lent.

    1. LENT PROMOTES A SALVATION OF WORKS Lent is ultimately a list of dos and don’ts. The focus is on the individual not Christ. Scripture teaches that forgiveness of sins cannot be obtained by our efforts. Titus 3:5 "Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he ...read more
