Sermon: “There Is Always Time”
Reflection: Lent is a season that encourages us to reflect, repent, renew. This week we hear how Jesus lamented over Jerusalem, and through the example of the fig tree we are reminded of God’s patience with us. Giving us time to mature, to respond, to turn again, and again. We are reminded that repentance is always there, always needed. We don’t repent and starting over become perfect all at once. It takes time, a whole lifetime. We need repentance constantly. This week’s question: What is waiting to ripen in your life?
