The following assurance of pardon is from the United Church of Christ. Sisters and brothers, the power of resurrection is at work in us and with us! Through the former things of our lives and in the new heaven and earth that God is yet creating, the Spirit of Christ leads us onto paths of victory over sorrow and death, disbelief and fear. Receive God’s grace in the secret place in your heart, where there are no words. For the forgiveness of God is too marvelous for words. Amen.
