"As you drink from the cup of salvation tonight, and on Holy Saturday and Easter, know that the cup of salvation is filled with God’s unconditional love for you. Jesus’ death was the cost of the love that fills your cup and mine forever more. Drink it to the dregs and be saved."

“Open your heart to the God who wishes to give you much more than God demands from you.”

How do you view God? What is God’s personality? Does your understanding of God judge you or love you?

As we move into the last few weeks of Lent, Dean Randy Hollerith asks us to consider imagining a loving and forgiving God, and to carry that love to others in our lives.

“God wants us to do exactly what Jesus did with us, and our responsibility as followers of Jesus is to tend to others with the same compassion and intent.”

Repentance is not an expression of regret. It’s not a simple “I’m sorry” or a promise to do better. The Rev. Canon Rose Duncan tells us that true repentance is a reorientation and change of heart.

"If we are willing to follow Jesus and engage with the struggles of our own lives, we too will find moments of transformation for ourselves and for our world."
 
As the Rev. Patrick Keyser reminded us on Sunday, Lent is a time to take stock of our lives, contend with sin and reorient ourselves toward's God's loving embrace.

“Even when we feel trapped by that wilderness, our Lord is ever there, watching and waiting and working to redeem that which we think is irredeemable.”

Do you journal? Dean Randy Hollerith shared his experience journaling and reflecting on the difficult times in his life. He found that even in his darkest times, he could look back and see God’s presence.
