Sent Into Temptation

SENT - What would happen if we claimed the power God offers us through grace?  With this question we are led by the Holy Spirit into a new year of ministry as the church.  Tracing the stories of Jesus as presented by the gospel writer Luke, we consider the ways in which Jesus allowed the Holy Spirit to send him…into temptation, into ever deeper faith waters, into relationships that were messy and non-intuitive, into forgiveness.  So it is that we are “Sent” too.

This week we explore what it means to be sent into a culture filled with temptations that distract us from the counter-cultural message of Christ.
