Today we read Isaiah 59-60, and Ezekiel 17-19. In this story, we are reminded that repentance and returning to God are intrinsically linked in the Hebrew language "shuva" return, and "teshuva," repent. The root in both words is to return. This seems to be the described pre-operative steps toward God's gift of a new heart and a new soul, to live.
