Sometimes reconciliation is easier than we think. Other times it is quite difficult.

Is this a tragic miscarriage of justice? Or is something greater going on? Why did God forsake the man He called His beloved Son? Pastor Hinkle finds the answer in Psalm 22 and the writings of the apostle Paul.
Who was Jesus asking God to forgive? It wasn’t just the soldier pounding in the nails! There were others on His mind that day, too. Since his resurrection he continues to intercede for those who need God’s forgiveness. In this sermon from Ash Wednesday (2016), Pastor Hinkle encourages listeners to consider their own need for forgiveness and explains why God forgives and how He communicates that forgiveness to those who need it.
