Welcome to Lutheran Church of the Master for the First Sunday in Lent. Even in the desert, Jesus expands our definitions of a full life. It’s not the life the Tempter presents: a life defined by excess power, control, or reign. Excess is not abundance, but there is more. There is a fuller life we are called to live. Even in the midst of struggle, oppressive forces, hardship, and grief—God’s promises spill over, like the bounty of the first fruits from the ground. Even in the desert, you are called to the riverside to be washed by grace.
I hope you have had the opportunity to download the resources for this Season of anticipation to prepare your at-home worship spaces or for worship in the building. I also hope that the beginning of your Lenten Journey is fulfilling, as today promises to be inspiring. For worship today, I invite you to please download and open the worship guide to fully participate as you, too, are a vital participant in today’s liturgy. Peace & Blessings Dear Church ~ Pastor Dave
