Life Lessons with Jesus: A Lenten Journey Through the Gospels
A Lent & Easter Sermon Series with Rev Dr Richard Chung
Join us on a unique Lenten journey where we’ll explore some of life’s biggest lessons through the eyes of Jesus, as told in the Gospels of Mark and John. This series isn’t about being overly solemn; it’s about finding meaningful insights and joy in our walk with Christ. Each week, we’ll dive into a different Gospel story, unpacking how these ancient narratives have a surprisingly fresh and relevant take on our modern lives.
