Come And Die

When Christ calls a man, he bids him come and die.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

The journey of Lent always leads up a hill to a cross. There is no other route. Lent is a time to test our willingness to walk boldly with Jesus; to give up distorted goals; to “die” to old ways and reject new temptations; to steadfastly look beyond the cross, confident that God’s love in Jesus Christ “lives” in us, and through us, and takes hope into the future.
Elliott Wright

The person who wants to say who God is must tell the passion story of Christ as the story of God.
Jurgen Moltmann
