Converting the Church

Matthew 23 records some of the hardest truth spoken by Jesus, which was directed at the Pharisees.  We spend the season of Lent exploring the idea that it is not only those outside the confines of religious practice who are in need of “converting.”  Often, it is those inside the walls of the church, but who have lost the heart of the story, that Jesus is calling into His Kingdom.
