Holy Week & Holy Longings

Episode 20 | Lent Week 7 | Released April 6, 2020 | Special guest: Andrew Peterson

As we step into Holy Week, Raechel and Amanda are joined by singer-songwriter, author, and keeper of bees Andrew Peterson. The three share stories from a life-changing trip to Israel they took together a few years ago. They talk about worship at the Western Wall, the view from the Mount of Olives, and the eye-opening experience of walking where Jesus walked. He is risen! The stories are true!

Confession & Assurance: 

Confession: 

Most merciful God, we confess that we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done, and by what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. We are truly sorry and we humbly repent. For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, have mercy on us and forgive us; that we may delight in your will, and walk in your ways, to the glory of your Name. Amen. —from the Book of Common Prayer

Assurance:

Who is a God like you,

forgiving iniquity and passing over rebellion

for the remnant of his inheritance?

He does not hold on to his anger forever

because he delights in faithful love.

He will again have compassion on us;

he will vanquish our iniquities.

You will cast all our sins

into the depths of the sea.

—Micah 7:18–19
