Ezekiel 37:1-6, John 9:1-5
Today is the fifth Sunday in Lent, a special and sacred time in which we enter into a traditional season of preparation for Easter. For the month and a half, we will be encouraging you to “take on” or “give up” something for Lent that hopefully will challenge you to become more like Jesus: give more $ to “alms” (an old word for offering for the poor), take up a new book or Bible study, prayer and devotion time, act of service to someone or something, or give up an unhealthy habit, or create your own discipline.
I (and a couple guest preachers) will be sharing with you what I believe are some of the most vitally important and practical lessons of the Christian Faith: “Things You Need To Know” about the Christian Faith! A great deal of this is the stuff found out the proverbial “hard way!”
