Sermon 06 March 2022 (Lent 1)

Lent is a gift of opportunity by Fr. Dana

Simple Summary:  Lent is not a time of self-condemnation; it is a time of pruning. Jesus tells us “things which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart”, so examining our words and actions can help us examine the true state of our heart. God provides us this opportunity to cooperate with His pruning, to remove those things in our life which keep us from intimacy with Him.
