B15: The Third Sunday of Lent, Year B (2018)

Carla Pratt Keyes

Carla Pratt Keyes, Pastor of Ginter Park Presbyterian Church in Richmond, Virginia, preaches a sermon called “When Jesus Found His ‘Why’,” based on the Gospel reading from John 2:13-22. Carla says, “I’ve been reading lately about how events imbued with intense emotion can point to who we are and what we value… If we look back at our lives – particularly our standout memories and defining moments – we can find in those stories clues about what we most deeply value, and why we think we’re here, our sense of purpose in life.” Like the time Jesus turned over tables in the Jerusalem temple.
