Beyond Boxes –
Jesus and Us

This Lent, may our focus on the life and teaching of Jesus reveal to us ways in which we might open ourselves to moving beyond boxes – boxes in which we put God, boxes in which we put others, boxes in which we put ourselves. Jesus repeatedly lived, worked, ministered beyond the boxes associated with the experiences and understandings of those around him. Jesus invited others to live, work and minister outside their boxes.
