GUMC Worship 3rd Sunday Lent

Day of Acceptance
Acceptance tends to be a touchy subject. We saw this on the national stage as the country debated the existence of Covid and the legitimacy of the election process. In the church, acceptance is deeply connected with faith.

Degrees of faith tend to be used as a measuring stick for whom we accept and whom we do not. Acceptance does not mean approval. Acceptance is simply the willingness to recognize what is so, whether you personally believe it is good or not. It is an act of surrender, a way to release control over what we never had control of in the first place.
