"How Goes the Journey for You?"
By Pastor Jon Haakana

Lent begins on Ash Wednesday on February 14. Lent takes us to Easter, to the celebration and experience of the new life that Jesus won for us on the cross and through His empty tomb. But, what does that really mean to you - where are you in your life today? How is your journey going?

In Lent, we acknowledge our brokenness, our sin, our mistakes - AND own up to the consequences! We can't blame God or others - just humbly open ourselves up to God and ask for forgiveness. That's HARD! When we acknowledge that, despite the image we try to project, we just might actually have had SOME responsibility for the messes our lives can get in. THAT'S the beginning of change, of repentance, and of new life.
