This Sunday, we will center our worship and preaching on the lyrics for the song “Amazing Grace.” This song was written during the last years of the slave trade in Britain by John Newton. It speaks of our need for God’s amazing grace to come into our lives because of our inevitable sinfulness. 25 years after retiring from the slave trade and joining the Anglican church, Newton wrote these words to reflect his experience. However, they have easily survived beyond his experience and come to be a representative song for all Christians, particularly in America over the course of the past 200 years. This Sunday, we will focus our worship, and our hearts on God’s amazing grace that comes to us all.
