Lenten Resources: Visit our Lenten Resources page on our website for prayers and other lenten home activities for all ages. 1st Sunday of Lent – February 21, 2021 “After John had been arrested, Jesus came to Galilee proclaiming the gospel of God….” Mark 1:14 Do you ever think about how difficult it must have been for Jesus to come into Galilee, knowing that John had just been arrested for teaching the same message that Jesus was proclaiming. It must have taken great love and trust for Jesus to do what the Father had sent Him here on earth to do. In the same way, following a life of stewardship takes great love and trust from us. We must be willing to surrender completely to God, trusting that God will always give us all that we need to fulfill His plan for us.”
