Lent 2 – “Between Holiness and Compassion” – Nicodemus, a member of the Pharisee party whose aim was to achieve holiness through ritual purity and social exclusion, was intrigued by the alternative approach of a very popular rabbi, Jesus of Nazareth, who had a ministry of preaching and healing with all manner of unacceptable outcasts. During an out-of-hours meeting with Jesus, Nicodemus was told of the necessity for rebirth into a new order – an order not limited by custom and tradition, but where there is acceptance, welcome and healing for all.
John 3: 1-17
