2020 Lenten Worship

Lent 2020 at Salem Lutheran Church and School

Lent for All Nations

Today there’s a lot of talk about nationality, race, and ethnicity in our country. Both the left and the right have their talking points and agendas. But how do the Scriptures address these issues?  What can the Church say without descending into partisan politics?

The 2020 midweek Lenten series at Salem is examining New Testament characters with specific nationalities and ethnicities.  Even these little details point us to Jesus Christ and teach us to love our neighbors in His name. For example, why is it important that Simon, who carried Jesus’ cross, hailed from Cyrene?  We’ll find out as we also give thanks for today’s missionaries who have come to North America to share the love of Jesus.
