Homily: 1st Sunday of Lent

Discernment in the Desert © Jan Richardson

Doesn’t it seem strange that God would declare his only son beloved and on whom his favor rests and then send him off into the desert to be tempted by the devil? A heck of a way to treat your only child!

So why does Matthew craft this story?  And why would angels lead Christ into the desert to meet Satan?  And how does a true story of a dying college grad shine light on all of this?  Light critical for our Lenten Journey.

Check it out.

It may just give you a whole new meaning to this season we call Lent!
