Day 9 – The Lenten Journey of Sid

sermon

This whole non social media thing is WAY harder than not eating meat. As I’ve been going through “Lent for everybody” which is a Lent devotional by N.T. Wright from the Youversion app of the Bible, it was talking about the Sermon on the Mount and had readings based on this famous sermon. When I was in seminary, one of the courses I took was on the Beatitudes/Sermon on the Mount. We studied the text for 3 months. At first, I was wondering if that’s really stretching it. It’s 3 chapters. But as I got into it, I was thinking “3 months is not long enough to study this text!” I have written various papers on it, and I still feel like there is more that I have yet to discover concerning this seminal text. As I’m going through this fasting during Lent thing, one of the things I want to make sure I do is that I spend my time properly in terms of focussing on God during this time. I don’t think I’ve been doing a good job on that front. So I need to make sure I do that.

Join me on this journey.
