“A Word of Forgiveness” resources 20March

Posted in MCC resources at 11:12 PM by alexlozada

Ben Cachiaras began MCC’s “Famous Last Words” series with “”Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing” (Luke 23:34). I tried to balance note-taking and prepping the small group study guide with hosting the worship service at the Mountain Rd campus New Life Center. Too much multi-tasking the first two services, but sitting with my family from most of the 11:31 service let me focus more on the meaning of God’s amazing grace and forgiveness.

In the message, Ben referred to the beloved spiritual, “Were You There When They Crucified My Lord?” Marion Anderson, Johnny Cash, and many musicians have sung this. I remember my home church singing it every Easter – not nearly as musically beautiful as the version below, but with the sincerity that comes from those who know Jesus’ forgiveness 🙂
