Sermon: Sorrowful Searching: The Need to Belong!
This morning we begin our Lenten series from Darkness to Sight! The dynamic of light and darkness, sight and blindness, presents at least two fundamental themes.
First, it signifies the unveiling of a divine plan. God’s intervention in the dark world through Jesus marks the truth that in an unprecedented way God is now with us, and the kingdom of redemptive love and peace is here.
Second, it invites us to explore how much we see. Like a city on a hill at night, like a lamp on a stand, the kingdom is here. Even more, the risen Jesus is here! Where do we see him? How much of his kingdom presence do we recognize in our midst?
