It's Not About You

"It's not about you."

That's how it starts. It's not about you, in fact, it's about God. I like starting here. This is where we turned yesterday at the funeral. This is where we turn tonight on Ash Wednesday. It's not about you. See in the beginning God created, so it's really about what God is up to and what is about. Or as Warren so nicely put it, "God is not the starting point of your life; he is the source of it." So it is about who God is and what God did, what did for us on the cross. Now that seems an apt place for us to start this Lent.
