Preached by Richard Humphrey on Sunday, March 5th, 2017

This Lent we need to ask what shape we are in, and ask are we OK about that, is God OK about that?

Almighty and everlasting God, you hate nothing that you have made, and you forgive the sins of all who are penitent: create and make in us new and contrite hearts, that we, worthily lamenting our sins, and acknowledging our brokenness, may obtain of you, the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

The text can be found here.
