Our Lenten theme, New Way, takes a fresh look at a classic sermon. Jesus' words in Matthew 5-7, the Sermon on the Mount, will serve as our guide throughout the season. In that one sermon, Jesus overturns the prevailing wisdom of the world and invites us into a “New Way” of being—a way of acceptance for those who are outcast, a way of simplicity for those with cluttered minds and spirits, a way of gratitude for the gift of each day.
