Welcome to Prairie Faith Shared Ministry. Located in north central Kansas, six ELCA Lutheran congregations have stepped out in faith to enter into a truly shared ministry. We strive to provide the best tools for our members to grow as disciples of Christ and to proclaim the Good News of Christ within our communities and throughout the world. We hope you will join us at one of our churches for service on Sunday to experience for yourself the fellowship of Christ.
VOICES OF REPENTANCE
John the Baptist preached repentance. Those who heard his word—not only with their ears but with their hearts—left the baptismal waters of the Jordan as changed people. That is what repentance is. To repent is to change one’s mind and direction. It is to turn away from ungodliness to godliness. It is to move from unfaith to faith in Jesus Christ. It is, as John the Baptist preached, to bring forth fruit corresponding to one’s profession of faith.
In this Lenten midweek series, Voices of Repentance, the stories of those who came to John for baptism are told. Their stories reflect the lives of everyday people, though the characters themselves, except for John, are fictional. Suggested by the gospel accounts, the characters include John the Baptist, a Pharisee, a Sadducee, a well-dressed man, a well-fed woman, a tax collector, and a soldier. Hopefully, you can find a bit of yourself in all of these characters. Most importantly, may each of you experience true repentance and growing faith in Christ as the Lenten season unfolds.
