Lent 2015: Growing Deeper

ENCOUNTERING JESUS…

Each Sunday during this year’s observation of Lent at our church, encounters of Jesus with a specific person- and the after-effects, are being highlighted through scripture, song, message and a visual element. 

I would like to reflect on, and internalize these meetings of Jesus with very real people just like you and me. Looking for answers, perhaps- but maybe more important are the questions that arise. And the personal way Jesus interacts with each person: seeming to deeply know them and value them; encouraging them to think beyond the surface- and breaking all cultural, social and gender-based barriers while doing so. 

First Encounter: Nicodemus

Second Encounter:  Woman at a well

Third Encounter: A blind man

Fourth Encounter: Mary, Martha, and Lazarus  

 

Fifth Encounter: A woman anointing Jesus with fragrant oil
