Carl Lentz to Oprah: “That”s Why Jesus Came, So You Didn”t Need a Priest in the Middle”
This weekend, Hillsong New York pastor Carl Lentz will appear on Oprah’s show Super Soul Sunday, and OWN recently released a clip. The series is known for its extended conversation with leaders from different faiths and worldviews, but, if these clips are any indication, the episode will be mostly about Jesus:
Back in March, when the episode was taped, Lentz took to Instagram to explain about how Jesus was the focus of their conversation:
What struck me most about her, was her ease and kindness. She told me her key was “waking up each day and thanking Jesus for loving me and thanking Him for all he has done.” That practice, in that order, is one to be copied.
I’m grateful that she opened up her platform to talk about Jesus unapologetically and without borders. It’s literally impossible to “say all the right things” in interviews like this. I don’t even remotely try to. My goal is to always say the one thing that matters eternally, and by Gods grace, we are able to at least do that!
The show airs this Sunday on OWN.
