2nd Sunday of Lent
For each of us, Lent is a time of transformation, a time for growth into decipleship.
Through the challenges of Lent, we learn to see with Jesus’ eyes,
to discern needs and to respond freely in love to the many faces of pain and poverty we encounter.

The Reverend Douglas Johnston was not the best of drivers.
One Sunday he was driving home from church when unfortunately, he had a minor bump with a cyclist.
The poor man was knocked off his bike into the ditch.
The Reverend naturally stopped his car, got out and profusely apologised and gave the cyclist his card
saying that if he could ever be of help, then the man should not hesitate to ask.
As the man rode home he looked at the card which said, ‘The Reverend Douglas Johnston is sorry he missed you today.’
