“Journey to Jerusalem: A Call to Discipleship”
Each year the people of Highland Presbyterian Church write the daily devotional publication for Lent. This year’s theme is “Journey to Jerusalem: A Call to Discipleship.” The year’s weekly lectionary focuses on the Gospel of Luke. Luke presents a Jesus that taught and challenged his followers as he traveled across Palestine, beginning in Galilee and ultimately arriving in Jerusalem, to complete the critical events we associate with Holy Week. This year we prepare for our journey to Holy Week by pondering those experiences we have had that have brought us to new understandings of being called to serve God, and those times when we have been challenged to commit ourselves to greater degrees of discipleship.
Please consider selecting one of the recommended scripture texts and writing a brief devotion that relates a personal story, an example of personal faith formation, or some element of wisdom that you have discerned by either experiencing a sense of calling or a challenge to a heightened commitment to follow the lead of Christ. Feel free to submit a photo with a simple statement if it captures your thoughts. Please conclude your devotional with a one sentence prayer. It would be helpful if devotionals could be emailed to Rob by February 22 ([email protected]).
