In line with our efforts to present and enhance INSiGHT as a resource for planning church calendar observances, INSiGHT March arrives with a series of Lenten Meditations that culminates in CWM Moderator Rev. Lydia Neshangwe’s Easter devotion.

As we journey towards the death and triumphant resurrection of Christ, Presbyterian Church of Aotearoa New Zealand (PCANZ) Moderator Right Rev Hamish Galloway encourages us to navigate pandemic-related tension, temptation and taunts with resilience; while Yonsei University Korea lecturer Sigamoney Shakespeare’s Ash Wednesday reflection calls on us to stand in fearless solidarity with the vulnerable, emboldened by our vulnerable God.

The theme of vulnerability is further explored by Rev. Parulihan Sipayung, Gereja Kristen Protestan Simalungun (GKPS), Indonesia from a theological and philosophical standpoint; from the Pacific context by Rev. Sepiuta Hala’api’api, The Anglican Diocese of Polynesia, and Rev. Dr Gifta Angeline Kumar, Church of North India (CNI) tells us more about the shadow pandemic.

Be encouraged. Be inspired. Be informed. Welcome to INSiGHT.
