Bumps and bruises on the road of life is expected and we might look back and see our successes or our failures. Either way, if we can bring ourselves to trust in God's mercy, we are better able to look forward together as a community.
This week let us reflect on our connection with those around us in faith -- especially those newly joining us as members of the Body of Christ this Easter Vigil.
God's mercy should inspire us to show mercy in our lives as well. What we can do for others should always be inspired by the message of life Jesus models and teaches for us. Listen this week to one way of living our our Lenten journey that helps to do just this.
To start our journey forward toward fullness of life can seem frightening. Yet, we are not alone and with Jesus as our teacher and our community supporting us, our discipleship can transform us and those around us.
Enjoy our Reflection for the First Sunday of Lent.
