1st Sunday of Lent

Posted on

Originally delivered on February 20, 1994

Readings: Genesis 9:8-15; Peter 3:18-22; Mark 1:12-15

In today’s first reading, we hear about God’s use of the rainbow as a sign that God’s promise to always be there for us. God is promising us that we will never be abandoned.  We are challenged to recognize that perhaps the rainbow is a symbol of God’s plan for our diversity and that we are called to be the face of God to our sisters and brothers.  Like Jesus in the desert, we will face hardship, but God’s promise will see us through those times, just as Jesus endured the 40 days.
