When we read the story of John the Baptist preaching "Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand," we can hear anger or a list of things that are wrong with us. Josh reminds us that our identity is not tied to what we've done, are doing, or will do. The call to repent is an invitation to reorient our lives to prepare the way for Jesus to walk out of the woods and impart life that conquers death, identity, new beginnings, and a heart for those around us living in their brokenness. This week's worship journey: "prepare the way." Matthew 3:1-12.
