2012 Lenten Reflection Series
During his After ShockÂ tour in South Central PA, Kent AnnanÂ played I Want on a number of campuses. The video is based upon the beginning of Chapter 3: Giving Up and Finding (Following Jesus Through the Eye of the Needle.Â InterVarsity Press, 2009). In this section, Kent struggles with desireÂ as he seeks to follow Jesus through the eye of the needle in the transition to serving God/following Jesus in Haiti. As you watch the piece, reflect upon your journey in higher education, repent of yourÂ wants, ask how God desires to transform you more and more into a little Christ, a new creation blessing/care for others through your vocation — reaching fulfillment in the new heavens/new earth. Hmm. . . . I’m getting ahead of myself and the liturgical calendar, but it’s hard not to!
