Wilderness: Second Sunday in Lent

Mar 5, 2023    Rev. Amanda Nicol

Sometimes the wilderness mystifies and scares us. Nicodemus comes to Jesus by night, desperate for concrete answers to swallow up his doubt. Instead, Jesus offers him poetry and mystery, pointing him to the wildness of the Spirit. The hymn of Psalm 121 reminds us of the power of song when trudging through difficult or perilous wilderness spaces. Our songs give us courage and strength to climb even the highest of hills.
