This week, St. Columba begins the journey of Lent, and reflects on the theme Cost and Blessing: Facing your fears (Psalm 25:1-10; Mark 8:31-35). Peter is surprised when he learns the end result of Jesus’ journey. He pushes back, demanding that Jesus avoid his death. Jesus stands firm, because he can’t back down from his healing, redemptive ministry.
When does standing up to the powers have a cost in our lives and in our society? How can we face our fears and have the courage to invest in the vulnerable?
