Show Notes

Riley and Shiloh talk about being born again as an emptying that is necessary to being filled with all that God has waiting for us to experience. What is waiting for us when we're able to empty ourselves every day? Is there a way to start over, even emptying our very concepts of God to allow the divine to work within us into something new and wondrous every day? The LDS Bible Dictionary's definition of repentance is "a change of mind, a fresh view about God, about oneself, and about the world." As repentance is a daily process, then we must learn to see God, ourselves, and the world anew every day. Although we may have been "born again" yesterday and the day before that, as Alma asks, "if ye have experienced a change of heart, and if ye have felt to sing the song of redeeming love, I would ask, can ye feel so now?" (Alma 5:26). We hope you enjoy!
