“Careful! I’ve put a huge stone on the road to Mount Zion, a stone you can’t get around. But the stone is me! If you’re looking for me, you’ll find me on the way, not in the way.” – Eugene Peterson, Romans 9:33, The Message.
Perhaps the greatest challenges of Lent are not the obstacles, but rather learning to understand that the obstacles help make us who we are. Maybe the call is to give them another name. Love. What else are we looking for?
Come join us on the journey as we try to quit trying to outwit the stone. Maybe when we give up that futile task, we really can start to see God. In one another. In ourselves. In this world.
