How might our contemplation during Lent be transformed if we kept these two often forgotten realities at the forefront:
- Resurrection = God’s new world is underway
- The Cross is how God’s kingdom comes
This Lent I’d like to invite you to join me with youth in over 75 countries taking part in the Live Life journey. I’ve been asked to share, in 4 videos over the next 6 weeks, reflections on fasting, prayer and service. It’s my hope that this side of the Resurrection we might see the life and violent death of our Lord, as God’s nonviolent victory over the Powers and the launch of God’s new world underway. Only then might our Easter be as dangerous as the first.
You can get started with Live Life this Lent at www.worldvisionyouth.org
All videos will eventually be posted here together.
Lord, this Lent may we undergo your love, pick up our cross and walk in the Resurrection.
