On this first Sunday of Lent, the gospel passage from the lectionary was Luke 4:1-13, where Jesus goes into the wilderness for 40 days and there, encounters tests and tribulations. Pastor Lydia shared how tests and temptations are not only inevitable, they are important parts of our own growth processes. Therefore, the invitation is not to resist them, but to welcome those tests and temptations and pass them in order to elevate to a higher level of being. It was also a Communion Sunday.
How lovely it was to have the choir back live this morning, who performed “Majesty, Worship His Majesty” as the introit and “The Communion Song.”
Many thanks to Manny Don who was our liturgist, Michaela Hill who recorded the service, and Grace Amador who was the pianist.
