Return (March 1st, 2017)

Ash Wednesday begins the season of Lent, a time of spiritual renewal and refocusing. The prophet Joel called God’s people to “return to the Lord your God” (Joel 2:1-2, 12-17). Looking at his words and King David's great prayer of confession in Psalm 51, we consider why “repentance” is so important: we cannot cross a distance we don’t admit is there.
