Try this on for Lent

Try this on and see if it fits: I think that the dominant narrative of this country is crumbling and disappearing, and there are people doing everything to hang on to it, including killing (and “killing”) one another. I think Jesus offers an alternative narrative, a way of being in the world that’s good news.

That begins with conversion, repentance, and then baptism into to the death and resurrection of Jesus, a baptism which thereafter becomes a pattern for being in the world.

That’s big, good news.
