As disciples, our attempts to follow Jesus are often stymied by our own agendas. It is sometimes hard to let go of our plans, our desires, or our notions of success. Yet, like those very first disciples, we may have to alter our priorities, vision, or goals to accompany Jesus to the cross and witness the resurrection.
During this Lenten season, led by the music of Mumford and Sons, we will be invited to listen for God’s call at our own Fork in the Road. How is Jesus calling us to alter our path? What tough choices might it require of us? What are we willing to let go of in order to let Jesus take us in a different direction?
