“Here we have no lasting city, but we seek the city that is to come” (Hebrews 13:14).  In Lent and Easter pastors invite their parishioners to the eternal truths that guide our pilgrimage toward eternity.  The short First Epistle of Peter, only 105 verses, is rich with guidance and encouragement for living in a post-church and increasingly secular society.  Five times Peter tells the scattered congregations of Asia Minor that they are called by God and it’s those passages that serve as the starting point for this Lenten series.  God was calling them home from exile; “strangers and sojourners” they were.  So also are we, and God is calling us home.
 
This Seminary offering will include sermon manuscripts, textual notes, orders of service for midweek services, and also suggestions for the Sundays of Lent to help pastors in developing their own worship resources.
