Series: Pentecost

Category: Calvary Lutheran Church

How do you react when you know that you’ve done wrong? We live in a world that says you shouldn’t feel shame, and yet so many of us still wrestle with it regularly. Our actions have consequences, even their affect upon our mental and spiritual state. How do we break free of the games we play to deny, minimize, excuse, and rationalize our poor decisions and actions? King David invites us in Psalm 32 to overhear the secrets that he has learned in some of the darkest times in his life.


(Our recordings begin with the scripture reading on which the sermon is based.)
