WTUC Weekly Announcement for Sunday, December 4th
This Sunday: Repent. The word comes from the Latin word meaning to regret or feel sorrow . The Greek word in the text is metanoeo, meaning to change ones’ mind. An intellectual understanding of that word plays very little in the New Testament. Rather, repentance is about turning the whole person around. Jesus likely used the word with a rich understanding of the equivalent word in the Hebrew scrolls; shuwb which means “to turn back or turn around. Text, Mark 1:1-8, Susan Townsley Preaching.
