We continue into the 3rd Sunday of Lent with Rev. Brian Coulter, pastor of First Presbyterian Church of Aiken South Carolina and author of the book Be Holy: Find Identity/Find Belonging/Find Purpose.

“Lent comes providentially to reawaken us, to shake us from our lethargy.” — Pope Francis

Brian provides a reflection on Isaiah 55 and the gift of holiness:

“When we embrace our calling to be holy, we not only participate in
God’s recreating the world but we participate in God’s recreating of us.
That is the best part of our calling. By accepting the invitation and living to
reflect God’s holiness in this world, we actually are the ones who change
the most. We are the ones who experience the greatest transformation.
We benefit. These benefits do not come as money, fame, or power —
but as identity, belonging, and purpose.”
