"The Bible does not teach that the sinner must repent before heeding the invitation of Christ. We can no more repent without the Spirit of Christ to awaken the conscience than we can be pardoned without Christ... [He] is the source of every right impulse. Every desire for truth and purity, every conviction of our own sinfulness, is an evidence that His Spirit is moving upon our hearts."

-Ellen White, Steps to Christ, p26

We thank Kristina Kozakova, a recent WWU graduate, who shares her singing with us and Bruce Toews, a WWU professor in the School of Business, who leads the band.

Kristina sings a famous and much loved song by the great French composer Charles Gounod (1818–1893). As you prepare to worship please silently contemplate the words of our opening hymn or those of the anthem, some of which are given here.

O divine Redeemer!
O divine Redeemer!

I pray Thee,
grant me pardon,
and remember not

Remember not,
O Lord, my sins!

-Kraig Scott
