B13: The First Sunday in Lent, Year B (2021)

Ryan Ahlgrim

In 1825, on the banks of the Wabash River in Indiana, an old town called New Harmony was founded. This town was to be the perfect society. Many wonderful things happened there, but within four years, they disbanded. “What went wrong?” asks Ryan Ahlgrim, pastor of First Mennonite Church of Richmond, Virginia. “People…We human beings are flawed…We’re not perfect. We’re not really capable of creating an ideal society.” This idea is at the heart of today’s passage from Genesis 9:8-17 and the basis for the season of Lent. There’s hope in God’s covenant with Noah and there’s hope for us.
