Assurance of Pardon:
Here the good news. This is a time of the year when lots of people are going through transitions. Some are experiencing the excitement and mixed feelings of graduation. Others are experiencing the excitement and mixed feelings of retirement. Others are going through other transitions including moving to new locations. But we are reminded today that God is present with us during transitions. God renews and through Jesus Christ God forgives. AMEN.
