Genesis 12:1-4

 We can often get into a comfortable rut! We don't hear our respond to God's call to leave comfort and family behind and take risks and have courage to follow God. Abram responded to God's call, leaving safety and following God. We must today, follow God in love, taking risks for Justice. Love strangers, reach out to the unloved, befriend those of other faith and life-styles. It is in there that you will find Jesus. Love the immigrant, defend the widows and heal sick in love and care. That is our challenge and mandate for our Lenten Journey.
