A Disposition to Do Good Continually

I invoke the blessings of heaven upon each and every one of you of the rising generation and pray that your righteous thoughts and deeds will overcome any susceptible disposition to do evil and that the Holy Spirit will be your constant companion in helping you to develop a disposition to do good continually.

Repentance and Forgiveness in Marriage

Besides a sincere apology, repentance includes striving to forsake our shortcomings and weaknesses. We strive to keep our promises to do the dishes.

For Times of Trouble

The “germ” of discouragement...is in Satan, the Prince of Darkness, the Father of Lies. And he would have it be in us.

Borne upon Eagles’ Wings

I believe with all my heart, I believe as certainly as I stand here, that—if we can repent of our sins, if we can be charitable with the sins of others, if we can take courage toward our circumstances and want to do something about them—there is a power, a living Father of us all who will reach down and, in the scriptural term, “bear us as on eagles’ wings.”

Cast Your Burden upon the Lord

Repentance is the means whereby we can cast our burden of guilt and inadequacy upon the Lord, who has promised, "though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow." Bishops and Church councils are there to help us in this cleansing, healing process.
