Repentance

This morning we continue preparing the way of the Lord through John the Baptist’s preaching, though the Baptist is not usually a Christmas figure we think about! (Can you imagine sending this as your Christmas card?) Join us as we talk about repentance!

Join us to pray as well. In the wake of the tragedy in Newton, Connecticut, it is important that we come together to mourn and to pray.

Song for Advent:Repent means to turn back from, turn away from. This song is about the world turning, and it is a beautiful Advent song: The Canticle of the Turning.

My heart shall sing of the day you bring. Let the fires of your justice burn.
Wipe away all tears, for the dawn draws near,
and the world is about to turn!
