Meeting God During Lent

As we enter Lent, we consider what it means to put earthly things to death. This week, Chris+ Myers, Associate Pastor of All Saints East Dallas, suggests questions we should ask ourselves in this season. “Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. … Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another, and if one has a complaint against another, forgive each other, as the Lord has forgiven you, so also must you forgive.” Colossians 3:3;12-13 There is a steely-eyed realism to Lent, beginning as it does on Ash Wednesday with that solemn remembrance of our mortality: “Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.” To be marked with ashes in this way, to take heed that we are in fact mortal, is our individual and communal acknowledgement that death is the consequence not ultimately of natural causes but of sin. The ashes speak to our mortality and to our estrangement from God without Christ. […]

A Heart for the Homeless

It is estimated that more than a half a million Americans are homeless on any given night.* How can the Church respond to such a large need? Desert Mission Anglican Church in Phoenix started by considering how to love well the 5,600 homeless in Maricopa County, Arizona. The church learned that through partnership with I-HELP Sunnyslope they could begin to make a difference. The organization is a collaborative effort facilitated by IMPACT Phoenix and seeks to reduce the number of people in the community living with the challenges of homelessness. We talked to Nathan+ Hale, rector of Desert Mission, about how his congregation has seen God at work through their efforts. […]
