And this is often what we want this present day. We who've now not taken any steps during this sacred course, won't reap the benefits of discussing the better phases of these vacationing this course. If we're sensible beings, we should always have an understanding of step one and the 1st level and the way we must always commence our worship. step one at the direction of affinity to God is repentance, that's the subject of my speak this night.
