“It’s not my fault!”

June 4th, 2015

Dear Disciples of Jesus at American Lutheran,

It’s not my fault!” How many times have you said those words when you realize you’ve made a mistake but don’t want to admit it? So we make it another’s fault. The dog ate my homework. The car in front of me stopped too quickly. My partner didn’t write it down on the calendar. Blaming goes all the way back to Adam and Eve, whose story we’ll hear in worship this Sunday (Genesis 3:8-15).

The good news is that God doesn’t reject us when we make mistakes. We can own up and be forgiven. With grace enough to forgive one another. Thanks be to God!

See you in church,

Pastor Gretchen
