Wednesday, April 16, 2014The Sacrament of Confession Host(s): Lynne Ford
Listen Now Number of listens: 0 Download File Number of downloads: 0

Confession is more than just good for the soul. It loosens the power secret sins have on our private lives. It reminds us of why we need a Savior. It should sanctify us, rather than shame us. And it's a bridge to forgiveness that reconciles relationships. It's true for us...and it's true for the generation that comes behind us, too. What would happen if our teens learned to stop the cycle of secrecy and watch the Holy Spirit convict, heal, and empower them to live in freedom? Clinton and Tonya Faupel, along with Randy Murphy join Lynne for a power-packed conversation on the sacrament of confession for our teens.
