This weekend at Eastbrook Church I continued our series “Crossroads” which corresponds with our Lenten journey to the Cross. This weekend’s message was entitled “Lord of the Cast Off” and looks at two stories from Jesus’ ministry with unexpected heroes. In both Luke 21:1-4 and 7:36-50, we see Jesus giving praise through the example of two apparently insignificant and outcast women. For me, these are two of the most beautiful stories in the Gospel of Luke.
Also, join in with the daily devotional and reading plan for this series here.
