During this Lenten season I will be preaching on Encounters With Jesus based on the texts suggested by the lectionary. On this first Sunday in Lent, we begin where Jesus began his ministry, in the wilderness of Judea (see Matthew 4:1-11). Led there by the Spirit immediately after his baptism, Jesus faced his Wilderness Test, and passed. What can we learn from his example? What is the wilderness? What are we to do with the times we find ourselves there? Think about that.
