Free us for joyful obedience, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. Pastor:
Hear the good news. Christ died for us while we were yet sinners; that proves God’s love toward us. In the name of Jesus Christ, you are forgiven! People: In the name of Jesus Christ, you are forgiven! All: Thanks be to God. Amen. THE LORD’S PRAYER
