Hi friends! I am beginning a series on the Gospel readings for each Sunday of Lent. Since I missed last Sunday, here’s a reflection on the reading for that day, focused on the Temptation of Jesus. Later this week I’ll share an episode about this coming Sunday’s text.
A few things:
Here’s the reference to the “Mark Wahlberg 40 Day Challenge” I mentioned at the beginning of the episode. I don’t know why, but I find this ridiculously hilarious.
Here’s a link to my upcoming book, Bible Stories for Grown-Ups. It releases April 4, and I can’t wait for it to be out in the world!
If you are a pastor or church leader, or someone with a living room and an interest in such conversations, I am planning a tour to support the book. If you’d like to talk about the possibility of hosting a stop, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I hope to see some of you on the tour!
Thanks for being a subscriber! If you find this work interesting and helpful please share it with others.
