This year, Ash Wednesday and Valentine’s Day coincided. As part of my Lenten journey, I am using “Meeting Jesus in the Gospel of John” by the Society of St. John the Evangelist. This study began this past Sunday, and Week 1 invited participants to reflect on how they experience and respond to God’s unconditional love.
Rather fitting for the confluence of observances.
This sermon is a response to some of my ponderings on the subject.
Sermon offered for Ash Wednesday, February 14, 2018, at Christ Episcopal Church in Fairfield, Alabama. Readings: Readings: Joel 2:1-2,12-17; Psalm 103:8-14; 2 Corinthians 5:20b-6:10; Matthew 6:1-6,16-21.
