Walk This Way: A  Sermon Series for Lent Inspired by the Path of Jesus

"For God’s foolishness is wiser than human wisdom, and God’s weakness is stronger than human strength."  (1 Corinthians 1:25).  As we follow Jesus on his final journey from Galilee to Jerusalem, we will discover what Paul wrote to the early Christian communities; God's wisdom shows up in a life of extravagant vulnerability.  Each stop on this six-week journey takes us into the heart of Jesus' own human experience where we see the foolishness of God unfold.
