passage : Mark 1:12-15.
passagePhrase : And the Spirit immediately drove him out into the wilderness. He was in the wilderness forty days, tempted by Satan; and he was with the wild beasts; and the angels waited on him.

Two verbs stand out in this reading for the first Sunday in Lent: Repent and Believe. The call - and challenge - of Lent could not be summed up more succinctly. Metanoia, the word translated as “repent” means making a fundamental change in your thinking AND living. In the words you say and the actions you do. Mark asks us to consider what changes we must make in our thinking not only individually, but as an Edgewood College community and as a society. What changes must be made in the way we live and interact with one another? What are the things we can do to become a more just and compassionate force in the world? This is the work of Lent. It will take more than the 40 days allotted on the church calendar for changes to take root, become real and permanent. But let’s make a good beginning, together this Lenten season.
