"So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering." (Romans 12:1, MSG)

#LukeActs2014 - Luke chapter 13

The first paragraph title in chapter 13 of Luke's gospel (Common English Bible) is:
Demand for genuine change
Repentance, an earlier theme in Luke, is appearing here again. Not once, but twice, Jesus says, "unless you change your hearts and lives, you will die" (vv. 3 and 5).

This familiar call to repentance, to "change our hearts and lives," brought to mind one of my favorite songs...Give Us Clean Hands by Charlie Hall. In my mind, this is more of a prayer meant to be sung than anything else...and perfect for Lent.
Give us clean hands, give us pure hearts, let us not lift our souls to another...

This video was filmed by my trusted colleague, Josh Wilson, in a garden outside Trinity's beautiful chapel.
