Change Our Hearts


Discipleship is the living and proclaiming of the Christian Story, the Story of Jesus.  In order to truly live our discipleship we need to hear this STORY again and again.  We also need to reflect on how this STORY is being ‘told’ in our individual lives as well as in our world.  The journey of Lent is a journey of conversion:  to change our heart so that it becomes more and more like that of Jesus.  The gospels of Lent all point to this process.
