Navigating the Wilderness: From Trauma to Resurrection
Lent begins in the wilderness, where we meet Jesus coming face to face with tests and temptations. Although he does depart for Galilee after forty days, through the lectionary texts this season, we continue to follow Jesus through some of the most challenging moments in his ministry. Despite the struggles he encounters, we learn more about who Jesus really is and are reminded that there is no wilderness space too harsh or threatening for God’s love. How will we navigate our own seasons of wilderness? What does it feel like to move from some of the hardest moments of our lives into the promise of resurrection?
