Lenten Sermon Series: Character Is Always Chosen March 17-April 21
In these weeks that lead us, once again, to the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, we will reflect on who we are called to be as we take our own journey toward the fullness of resurrection. “Who we are called to be” is the point of this sermon series. In his book, "The Road to Character," David Brooks says, “Most of us have clearer strategies for how to achieve career success than we do for how to develop a profound character.” There is wisdom in Brook’s remarks, as character is not something that just happens; character is always chosen. Physical growth happens naturally. Spiritual growth requires discipline, intention and choice. We will reflect on some of the strategies for choosing character in this sermon series.
