LENT 1 - Psalm 25:1-10; Mark 1:9-15

Rev Derwyn begins a unique three-part sermon series in response to a challenge brought to him by a colleague. Based on the book, "Jesus and the Disinherited," written by African-American clergyperson Rev Dr Howard Thurman, this series explores the gospel of Jesus Christ from a perspective that is likely quite different from what we might be used to: the perspective of those who stand "with their backs against the wall." As we are introduced to this way of seeing Jesus, it is hoped that we will develop an appreciation for a fuller understanding of what Jesus was up to in his ministry in ancient Israel.
