LENTEN ONLINE BIBLE STUDY 

by The Rev. Dr. Walt Lichtenberger

Our culture teaches that if you work hard enough, smart enough, and long enough you can achieve near-perfection in every aspect of life.  It is possible for us to have it all: from vibrant health to functioning family; from attentive friends to productive children; and from financial success to long-term security.  So we search high and low for the right plan, program, pill, or prayer.  Frustration sets in when we discover that life is more complicated than the easy answers offered by advertisements, pundits, and celebrities.  Somehow we are never satisfied.  We become discouraged and judge ourselves and others for our failures.  We might even blame God for not listening or caring.  

This Lenten season, instead of seeking 'perfection,' we will head in the opposite direction.  We will embrace imperfection.
