As the time approached for him to be taken up to heaven, Jesus resolutely set out for Jerusalem.
Today begins Lent: the forty-day commemoration of Jesus' journey to Jerusalem and the Cross. This is the time that we set aside our own agendas and walk with him. Some of us are preparing for Easter baptism; we are getting our houses in order, so to speak.
For many of us, this is the time that has circled back around for us to focus on setting aside our agendas, and whatever things entangle us, and run with perseverence the race marked out for us.
"Blessed be God who forgives all our sins:"
"His mercy endures forever!"
