St. John's Franklin Podcast

Kenny Benge preached a sermon entitled “The Desert Experience in the Christian Life” based on Mark 1:9-15 for the First Sunday of Lent on February 25, 2012. Most often, desert experiences are not something we choose, but something chosen for us, a place God brings us to…The desert is a place of abandonment, of deprivation, hostile to living things, itself cutoff, a place that seems to threaten our sense of flourishing. The desert is the environment where idols are least likely to survive, a place where we need moral courage to survive.

“Unnatural changes in the most basic rhythms of life signal that God is rearranging structures in the deepest layers of existence.”
