First Sunday of Lent - Ashamed No More: God Will Show Us Salvation

On this First Sunday of Lent we begin an exploration into the theme of salvation from the perspective of honor and shame, rather than from a more western perspective of judgment and guilt.  Ashamed No More throughout Lent examines how we might understand God's grace and mercy differently, how we might understand salvation differently as we examine these through the lens of honor and shame.  
Connect to Ashamed No More: God Will Show Us Salvation.  This week's message focuses upon how living our lives in Christ is to be open to God's work in us, to be open to the honor God bestows upon us and God through Christ Jesus takes upon himself our shame.  And instead of living lives of shame we are set free in Christ to live lives of shalom.
