Jesus laments over Jerusalem in the Gospel of Luke, and it is one of those texts that opens the door to an interesting truth. We are not called to a temple faith. In the sermon, I offer the deal to return to a temple faith, but in truth I love the New Covenant in Christ. We are God's not due to our ability to keep laws or kill bulls, but because God is faithful in Christ to bring us to God's own self. We are the Temple of the Spirit, so there is no temple to go to, no tax to pay, no sacrifice except one of praise and thanksgiving, as our liturgy reminds us weekly. Amen. That is pretty good news for Lent.
