Scrutinies - the mystery of sin and grace

Scrutiny at St James Cathedral, Seattle
If you (or I) are looking for some thoughts about the third, fourth, and fifth Sundays of Lent, idea-
starters or whatever, I want to be able to find some things quickly. So today I'm just going to put all the blog entries I've written on the scrutinies and these gospels, and put them all onto this page, so that we can find them easily. I put the word "scrutinies" in the title so that we can find them easily enough with a quick search.

Where's your Samaria? Who's that at your well? (Mystery of sin, part 1)
