Rev Dr Durrell Watkins
So many people are wounded by old messages they learned in churches. They heard repeatedly that they were sinful, depraved, and that God would abandon them to an afterlife of unimaginable torment unless they confessed their evil nature, begged for forgiveness, and held certain opinions about scripture, God, and/or Jesus. When they come to a progressive church and hear that they are innately good, even if their behavior hasn’t reflected that truth sometimes, that God’s love is unconditional and will never let them go, then they become afraid that the message of love and grace isn’t “godly.” Sometimes they return to the places that degraded them because they can’t allow themselves to trust a message of affirmation. But for those who will hear, I continue to proclaim: God is Love and divine Love will never let you go!
God is Love and will never let me go. Alleluia!
