As I've seen in others and experienced myself, apologizing is difficult and even threatening for some people. When we admit that we were wrong, we're also seemingly losing our place of power in the relationship. Truly saying, "I'm sorry. I was wrong." is taking on an attitude of humility that some people find very difficult. It reminds me of this scene from the TV show Seinfeld:
So that brings us back to saying, "I'm sorry". The first person each of us need to say that to each day is God. Do you find that difficult, too? This Sunday, August 17th, we'll be looking at a song for saying, "I'm Sorry": Psalm 130. Forgiveness is a wonderful gift to give and to receive! I hope to see you this Sunday.
Starting in September our entire congregation - from the toddlers to the grandparents - are going to read and understand the Bible as one continuing story of God and his people. We'll be using "The Story" - a chronological Bible put together by Max Lucado and Randy Frazee. We'll have more information and samples of the materials to you to look at on Sundays with our big launch happening on Sunday, September 7th. In the meantime, you've welcome to check out more information at www.thestory.com.
