We have celebrated Christmas tide and Epiphany tide. We have explored (albeit briefly) Christ’s presentation in the temple, his baptism and his transfiguration. We now begin to turn our minds to the Cross and what it means for us. Like Advent, Lent is a journey. We are all on that journey and I hope that in the provision of services and bible studies we can travel together, understanding what it means to be a community and expanding that community and our comfort zones as we learn more about being a disciple of Christ.
