Every great story has a basic form, a common structure: a hero who goes on an adventure, faces tremendous crisis, yet overcomes incredible odds and wins a decisive victory. The hero then returns home transformed with the power to give hope and rescue to those left behind.
During lent we focus our hearts on Jesus Christ, the ultimate hero, as he journeys to the cross, overcomes the tomb and leads his people into resurrection life. Lent is a time to reflect on the brokenness of our world and a time to repent for the brokenness in our lives. It is also a time to look ahead to the day when all things will be made new!
