“We start the Lenten journey discovering how vastly inclusive God’s covenant is and that it is extended from generation to generation. As humans, though, we struggle with barriers getting in the way and are in need of guidelines and eventually a new covenant. As we approach Holy Week, we are invited to lay down the barrier of our preconceived understandings and expectations, and to realize the good news that in Jesus’ death and resurrection there is no longer anything in between us and God.” Leader, Winter 2017-18, p. 33.
