“We Need a Higher Power to Save Us From Ourselves.”

Here are some thoughts on redemption from David Yount, author of 14 books, including Making a Success of Marriage.

“Unless we are desperate, we tend to deny our need for redemption. Even faith-oriented peope who acknowledge having fallen short of their creator’s expectations (and their own) are inclined to rationalize their shortcomings as excusable.”

“Redemption is a collaborative activity – cleansing, often purgative and occasionally harrowing. The psalmist was only reflecting the human condition we all share when he pleaded, ‘Out of the depths I have called to thee, O Lord; Lord, hear my voice’ (Psalm 130).  To his voice we join our own.”
