Repentance

Repentance can be a difficult subject. There’s a Shaker song, ‘Simple Gifts,’ whose lyrics say, “To turn, turn will be our delight ‘Til by turning, turning we come ‘round right.” What does it mean to “come ‘round right”? We look to Luke as we consider these questions. The American preacher Fred Craddock says of the text, “In fact, for Luke the gospel is the offer of repentance and forgiveness of sins…” A sermon by Rev. Chandler Stokes on Luke 13:6–9.

Repentance can be a difficult subject. There’s a Shaker song, ‘Simple Gifts,’ whose lyrics say, “To turn, turn will be our delight ‘Til by turning, turning we come ‘round right.” What does it mean to “come ‘round right”? We’ll look at Luke 13:6-9 as we consider this. The American preacher Fred Craddock says of the text, “In fact, for Luke the gospel is the offer of repentance and forgiveness of sins…”

As usual, there will be beautiful music: The Westminster Winds will perform at both services, and be joined by the Sanctuary Choir at 11:00a.

And don’t forget education at 9:30a: Dr. Jeff Tyler, professor of religion at Hope College, continues our series ‘The Church and the Reality of Violence’ in the chapel.
