All Readings for the Lenten Season - God Intended it for Good:  Joseph’s Journey and Christ’s Passion

2022 SPECIAL LENTEN SERIES: “In View of God’s Mercy”
Lent is a season when we take a look at our lives in view of God’s mercy toward us in the sacrifice of his Son for us on the cross. We, in turn, are called by God, especially during this time of repentance and reflection, to be living sacrifices for him, displaying our devotion to him in word and deed. Jesus helps us to see the richness of God’s mercy in his life, death and resurrection. The services in this worship series for Lent by theology professor David Peter focus our eyes of faith on the meaning behind God’s mercy made manifest in Christ.
