In the early church, the season leading up to Easter was used by some Christians as a time of preparation for baptism. Those who would receive baptism would prepare themselves through various practices to sacramentally join in the Paschal mystery:
Christ has died. Christ has risen. Christ will come again.
During Lent, we will prepare ourselves to live into the same mystery by exploring five parables that Jesus shared in the days leading up to his crucifixion. Jesus’ favorite teaching method will guide our learning as we prepare to proclaim the Paschal promise.
Note, sermon transcripts are updated as available. You should typically be able to find the week’s sermon transcript four days after the sermon is delivered.
Thank you for your patience!
