Keller & Elliot on Confession {Lent Day #40}

Still away today on Cape Cod for a women's retreat.  Would you pray for the time if you think of it?

Thought I would post these links ahead of time, since I won't have my computer with me.  Can't believe it's already day #40 of the Lenten season. Holy Week begins on Sunday, and I'm really thankful for all the Lord has taught me in this daily effort to focus on my deep need for His forgiveness.

What about you?  I'd love to hear how some of you prepare for the celebration of the Resurrection.

Here is an interesting snippet from Tim Keller on true confession and repentance:

And here is a link to an old "Back to the Bible" episode.  It's actually the transcript, but I think there's still a way to listen to the broadcasts.  This one is Elisabeth Elliot talking about confession and repentance.

Have a good weekend, and if you're up to it, leave a comment and share what you've been learning during this season!

Hi Melanie,
Thank you again for speaking at our retreat! I was encouraged and blessed by what you shared through your words, experiences, and being :). Everyone I spoke to was very blessed as well. Please keep speaking to women with your gift.
God bless, Lingwei (the (smaller) guitar player) :P
