Reverend Vollkommer shares her pragmatic take on a couple of concepts that have been used to sow dissent, punish, inspire, threaten, and establish entire religions.
We are justified
[... defended, supported, fended for, absolved, vindicated, freed,]
By God's grace
[...this comes to us with no strings attached, whether we are Christians or not. However,]
[... we, here in this church, have accepted the Gospel of Jesus, surrendered to it, as our way to a full and proper life,]
In Christ alone
[...and we find it to be sufficient. For us.]
Then follows a thoughtful and eye-opening take on "sin". You can conjure up as much guilt as you care to, but Marsha presents a much more loving interpretation, seeing sin as a contradiction, a failure in everyday life, a personal self-inflicted injury.
