Lenten Journey: Gospel of Nobodies

Lenten Journey: Gospel of Nobodies


Most of us have at some point felt like a nobody – insignificant, invisible, worthless. The Gospel of Luke is a first-century portrait of Jesus with a particular focus on his ministry with those who were considered nobodies. For Lent, join us as we read through the Gospel of Luke together. Each week, we’ll turn our attention to specific stories that illustrate Jesus’ concern for those who were marginalized by society, and as we do, we’ll hear his word for our lives today.
