"The Spirit drove Jesus out into the desert,  and he remained in the desert for forty days, tempted by Satan.  He was among wild beasts, and the angels ministered to him.

After John had been arrested, Jesus came to Galilee proclaiming the gospel of God:  "This is the time of fulfillment.  The kingdom of God is at hand.  Repent, and believe in the gospel.“

Mark 1:12-15

In this presentation, Fr. Jeff explorers how we use the word "journey" to describe our Christian lives and how we come closer to Jesus.

There are two handouts with this presentation:

  • Slides
  • Pre-Quiz to begin thinking about what the words "journey", "desert", and "Lent" means to us

Fr. Jeff's next presentation after this one was "The Journey to Jesus: Acts of Mercy" where he discusses acts of mercy coming from the silence and leading us to Jesus.

"A clean heart create for him, God; renew in me a steadfast spirit." Psalm 51:12
