Rev. Grace Imathiu is Pastor of First United Methodist Church in Evanston, Illinois, and an international speaker. She was born and raised in Kenya. Her father is a retired Bishop of the Methodist Church in Kenya and received the 2005 World Methodist Council Peace Award for confronting Idi Amin’s regime and South Africa’s apartheid system. Grace has seen it all. Her sermon for the First Sunday in Lent is from Mark 1:9-15, and it’s called “In Those Days.” Remember those days: the good old days, the bad old days? What kind of days were those when Jesus went to the wilderness?
