Numbers 21:4-; Ephesians 2:1-10 ; John 3:14-21

The Rev. Dr. G. Malcolm Sinclair is calling his sermon “Lent as Snakebite and Antidote.” “Sometimes life’s choices are so complex, and its themes so deep that only stories and symbols can lead us through the maze. Snakebite and its relief strike a deep chord in us, a good launch pad for pondering and for preaching.”

The Bible readings are Numbers 21:4-9 (the bronze serpent), Ephesians 2:1-10 (from death to life), and John 3:14-21 (Nicodemus visits Jesus)
