This Week at St. Paul's

 

For Next Sunday: Exodus 20:1−17, 15−16; 1 Corinthians 1:18−31; John 2:13−22; Psalm 19

March 1 – Second Sunday in Lent – Peter heard Jesus speak of suffering and death but he seemed to have missed the resurrection part. (Mark 8:31-32). The way of salvation would be the way of the cross AND an empty tomb. When we take up our cross and follow Him, we follow in the victory He has already won over death, and we follow toward the victory of our own resurrection. That makes cross bearing purposeful and hopeful.
