What’s been going on?

What’s been going on?

That’s what someone asked me this morning.

I did not know how to answer.

I immediately thought, “I don’t know. What happened last?”

It occurred to me that my internal response might fit a pinball better than a person.

Ever feel like your life might be a little fragmented?

This Sunday at the Gathering Church we will begin a new series, On the Way: Traveling with Jesus. It will be our focus for Lent, the next six weeks preparing for Easter.

If you would like to participate in a special Lent Focus of daily readings, go to allgather.org/lent

In Luke 9:51, Jesus set his face resolutely to head for Jerusalem. The ministry in Galilee was over. The end of his time on earth was rapidly approaching.

There is an intensity to his step now. The call to follow him becomes absolute.

What was it like to be one of his followers?

What did they learn?

How were their lives re-shaped?

How were they guided by the right kind of purpose and urgency?

Let’s engage this special season in a special way.

Make this Sunday the beginning of preparing for Easter.
