First Sunday in Lent

  • Holy Trinity Lutheran Church 7220 Southeast Cesar E Chavez Boulevard Portland, OR, 97202 United States (map)

These forty days called Lent are like no other.  It is our opportune time to return to the God who rescues; to receive the gifts of God's grace; to believe with the heart and confess with the mouth the wonder of God's love in Jesus; and to resit temptation at every turn.  This is no small pilgrimage on which we have just embarked.  It is a struggle Jesus knew.  It is a struggle Jesus shares.  The nearness of the Lord, in bread and wine, water and word, will uphold and sustain us.
