A New Way of Being in the World – Walter Brueggemann

February 16, 2018

“Lent is a time when we ask about the meaning of repentance… Jesus affirmed that it is possible to be in the world in a new way, to be present to the people and problems around us with some newness and freshness.”

“… he (Jesus) suggests another way: Seek first the kingdom and his righteousness. Put another way: Get your mind off yourself long enough to care; be so concerned about the well-being of the human community that you don’t have to worry about your place, your church, your class, your values, your vested interests.”

Dr Brueggemann is challenging me this Lenten season in the book, A Way Other Than Our Own: Devotions for Lent
