In his 'Biblical Stories' series, gay photographer Adi Nes critiques social injustice and challenges us to repent and change our ways. Repentance is the core message of Lent. After 40-days in the dessert, Jesus returned from the wilderness, and his first public statement is found in Matthew 4:17: "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven, is at hand". To repent is to change our hearts and minds so that we can re-create heaven on Earth, and there is plenty of repentance that is needed. Thought for today: How have you changed during Lent 2016?
