Braving the Wilderness

Lent with Second Presbyterian Church

The metaphor (and reality) of the wilderness runs like a ribbon through the pages of sacred scripture. It is a literal and figurative place of vulnerability, testing, solitude, and doubt. It is also a place of new beginnings, discoveries, and beauty. This year’s theme for Lent invites us to — using Brené Brown’s language — brave the wilderness by engaging the stories of scripture that center on this image.
