There Is A Fountain

The gist of the hymn There Is A Fountain is about forgiveness – divine forgiveness.

Repentance: A Commitment to Change

“. . .  in the wee hours of the morning, as I lay reflecting on all that we have accomplished up to this point, I was reminded how utterly cluttered and messed up our lives can get.”
