I am reposting Dr. Bob Cornwall’s original post “Everyone Ate Their Fill – A Sermon for Pentecost 9A“. Please visit his site for more interesting posts.
Lent is a season of reflection that begins on Ash Wednesday with words of confession, marked by ashes, and accompanied by a word of forgiveness. The journey continues with a word about how the Spirit led Jesus into the wilderness where he fasted and prayed and was tested for forty days (Luke 4:1-12). These forty days of Lent mirror the forty years that Israel wandered in the wilderness having their faith tested.
I preached a sermon during a weekly devotional time at Africa Theological College (August 13, 2012), Capetown, S. Africa. Africa Theological College was founded in 2002 and is part of the African Leadership program http://africanleadership.info/
