Join on for the Wednesdays in Lent, beginning with Ash Wednesday on February 22nd at 7:00PM for the sermon series "Honest Repentance" by Dr. David Maxwell.
Repentance starts with being honest before God and ourselves about who we are. When it comes to sin, everyone has a natural impulse to hide, but repentance means finding the courage to be honest. It also means having faith in the promise of forgiveness. Repentance is about becoming more human, not less. Because our thoughts, desires, and actions are so closely liked with sin, it is easy to view repentance as fighting against our humanity, as if holiness meant trying to stifle as many of our natural impulses as possible. But honest repentance recognizes that sin is the thing that stifles our humanity, while repentance results in our natural impulses functioning more as God designed them.
Lent Soup Suppers are also making a comeback. Those will take place from 6:00-7:00PM downstairs in our gym throughout the Wednesdays in March.
