February 18, 2018 - "Jesus Walks With Us in the Wilderness"


If we imagine the wilderness as a place that offers both challenges, struggle, and shapes us in lasting ways - where is your wilderness?  Where is life hard for you?  Where do you seek clarity, security, and need healing?  

In this sermon, based on Mark 1: 9- 15, I explore the 40 days in the wilderness prior to the start of Jesus ministry.   There Jesus is faced with tests, hardship, and receives God's care.  On the First Sunday in Lent, I seek God's care in our wilderness wandering.
