Assurance of Pardon:
Here the good news. God is revealed to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God is like a loving father who welcomes the prodigal child home. Human fathers will sometimes disappoint but God will always be faithful to us. We can celebrate that God’s love is real and transformative. We also affirm the words of Jesus that God’s Holy Spirit is revealed to us when we most need it. Through Jesus Christ we are always forgiven. AMEN.
