What does this look like for us? This morning as I have been working on the sermon, I have had a song running through my head that I have not listened to in years: Derek Webb's "I Repent." I would encourage you to click on the link to the YouTube video below (if you are receiving this by email, you might need to go to the actual blog webpage to click this link) and give the song a listen. I am particularly captured by the way I feel the song's last verse intersects with this week's readings:
i repent of trading truth for false unity
i repent of confusing peace and idolatry
of caring more of what they think than what i know of what they need
and domesticating You until You look just like me
i am wrong and of these things i repent
How do these lyrics and this idea of repentance intersect this week's readings? How do they intersect your life? What sort of repentance--turning--transformation--might God be inviting us to journey towards in this season?
