This Sunday evening we conclude our four-week evangelism study titled, “Just Walk Across the Room.” I’ve been pleasantly surprised with the turnout at each of the sessions. The response tells me that our members want to be able to name Jesus in their daily conversations; they just need some help knowing how to get the conversation started.
If there’s one incontrovertible fact to life here on Planet Earth, it’s that nothing about our existence is anything near a piece of cake. Most of us know all too well how each day’s events have a way of weighing us down with all manner of burdens and responsibilities, many of which are simply much more than we can handle.
This past Wednesday, we moved into a period of preparation for Easter. The Lenten season is a time for us not only to examine our hearts so that we might be more faithful to Jesus’ calling; it is also a time when we are called to give serious reflection to the sacrifices that are necessary for those who would follow in Jesus’ way.
