For the pod: The good, the bad and the ugly

A dear pal Peter preached up a storm in his series 'The Good the Bad and the Ugly' and I really recommend 'Judas: A Wasted Life'. Judas is such a key character in the story of Jesus as we all walk towards Easter in Lent and his choices are well worth reflecting on. I've listened to many of Peter's sermons down the years and this one has great 'unction' (to use a good BCP word) abounding in and through it. Do check out the rest of the series.

In the sermon he quotes Jerry Bridges on grace from his excellent book 'The Discipline of Grace' that really hit my heart:

“Our worst days are never so bad that you are beyond the reach of God's grace. And your best days are never so good that you are beyond the need of God's grace.”
