Adapting from Luke 9:51, Richard Wilke looks at Jesus journey to Jerusalem in order to help us think about how we set our faces in life. What are our goals as people of faith? What are we resolute or determined about in our lives? As we "set our faces" to Jerusalem and to the ministry, crucifixion, and resurrection of Jesus, what difference does it make? What does Jesus determination say to us about our commitments and about our need to grow in love of God and neighbor
The 40 days of Lent are ideal to use this study and for readers to set their faces toward Easter. Study includes seven sessions, one for each Sunday in Lent and Easter Sunday. Each session features a Scripture reference, a personal reading, questions for personal reflection or group study, and closing prayer.
