Readings for 2nd Sunday in Lent
Genesis 12: 1-4a, Romans 4: 1-5; 13-17 and Matthew 3.1-12



Tuesday 7th March


The end of the Genesis reading has Abram going as the Lord had told him. It is hard to discern God’s calling for us, it is difficult to work out which is God’s voice from among the clamour. But are we willing to change direction to respond to God? To change our life-style, our career, our priorities,  our life-long   habits? Are you being called to live out God’s grace   in a different way? Maybe some are being called as readers or clergy, or to serve in other less formal roles. And remember, you are never too old, Abram was 75 years old when he, “went as the Lord had told him.”
