Exodus 20:1-17 ; 1 Corinthians 1:18-25; John 2:13-22

he Rev. Dr. G. Malcolm Sinclair is calling his sermon “Lent as List-Making and House Cleaning.” “Lent is like the pattern of our life paralleled in story and liturgy. How do we prepare and pack for every eventuality? Tradition says keep it simple, travel light, and carry your essentials close to your heart. The one who loses luggage for the sake of the journey will find it!”

The Bible readings are Exodus 20:1-17 (the Ten Commandments), 1 Corinthians 1:18-25 (Christ the power and wisdom of God), and John 2:13-22 (Jesus cleanses the temple)
