First Sunday in Lent 2019

March 10, 2019

Bishop Ken Carter is like many of us United Methodists, as evidenced in something he wrote this week — 

I’ll try to detox and detach from some of the last few days, even as the substance of the work goes on, and I am deeply committed to it. I’ll continue to look for the best in people. I’ll remind myself, when I receive hate mail, that this person does not really know me.

So much packed into those three sentences! 

Today I’m going to worship and preach and begin a Lenten Bible Study Group as a means to “detox and detach from some of the last few days” of our General Conference 2019.

I’m grateful that I can do this “even as the substance of the work goes on.”

Without a doubt and by the grace of God, this “detox and detach” process and the reality of this Lenten season will influence and impact one another.

And may it be true that “I’ll continue to look for the best in people.”

And then there’s third sentence regarding the critic “who does not really know me.” I’m grateful for those who do “really know me” and tolerate me anyway, and at the top of that list is my Lord, Savior, and One True BFF.

How about you? Towards what are you leaning this First Sunday in Lent?
