LENTEN THOUGHTS
POWER BROKERS

Annas
John 18:13-14, 19-23
My name is Annas and all the religious, economic, and political clout of Israel rests with my family.  Although I’m the ex-high priest I’m probably more powerful than my son-in-law Caiaphas, the current high priest.  I was appointed by the Romans and,  likewise, was my son.  What does that mean?  It tells you we got where we are by toeing the line worth the Romans.  It also lets you know that when a person angers the high priest he’d better watch out.  Our ability to do a person in is powerful—excerpt from Brief Lenten Monologues for Worship
Prayer Thought
Are you, like Jesus, passionate about God and yearn to be in his presence?  What corners off compromise needs to be cleaned out of your life?  What tables of temptation need to be overturned?Suggested Music
