Arrested in Ferguson in an Act of Repentance | Jim Wallis.

Repentance is a powerful theme throughout the Bible. But its meaning is often not well understood. Repentance is not about being sorry or just feeling guilty. It is about turning in a new direction. The biblical word for repentance in the original Greek is metanoia, which means you are going in the wrong direction, and it’s time to turn right around.

Jim Wallis never fails to make me think.  It’s easy to express regret; much harder to change direction.
