JESUS’ TIME IN THE DESERT
GOSPEL MK 1:12–15
FIRST SUNDAY OF LENT

    One thing I have learned about my relationships this past year is how strong the connections to this community are. You all are not only in my prayer, but you help to form my prayer. Living together within the same heart of faith gives me strength for the journey, refreshment in the desert. Thank you.
