March 5
Sermon: Lead us (Not) Into Temptation
The Spirit leads Jesus into temptation and later Jesus teaches the disciples to pray lead us not into temptation.  Is that because he knows firsthand how tough it is?  Yet it’s in his wilderness testing that Jesus affirms his deepest identity and models that for us.  Our Lenten task is to confront ourselves honestly and grow a little stronger in the process.

Lectionary Readings: Genesis 2:15-17; 3:1-7; Psalm 32; Romans 5:12-19; Matthew 4:1-11

March 12
Sermon: How Can These Things Be?
Much in life is mysterious and perplexing.  How can God say to Abraham, “Go?”  How can God so love the world as to send the only Son?  How can someone begin again?  Nicodemus is a Jewish leader who comes to Jesus under cover of darkness to seek answers to life’s persistent questions. In him we meet a companion for our own Lenten pursuit of the deeper truth.

Lectionary Readings: Genesis 12:1-4a; Psalm 121; Romans 4:1-5, 13-17; John 3:1-17

March 19
Sermon: And There Sat Her Water Jar
She came to the ancient well at midday to get water.  Then her water jar sits there, abandoned in the hot sun, as she scurries away to the village to report on her encounter with Jesus.  What would it take for us, for the church, to be so profoundly affected by an encounter with Jesus that we drop everything to respond?

Lectionary Readings: Exodus 17:1-7; Psalm 95: Romans 5:1-11; John 4:5-42

March 26,
Sermon: Children of Light
Monday's child is fair of face... according to Mother Goose.  But don’t we hope that all ours will be children of light?  How much more, then, does God see God’s own beloved as children of light.  Jesus ushers a man born blind into the light, a journey to which we’re all invited.

Lectionary Readings: 1 Samuel 16:1-13; Psalm 23; Ephesians 5:8-14; John 9:1-41
