ASSURANCE OF GRACE This is the best of all: When we are empty, God fills us; When we are disheartened, God is compassionate; When we are wounded, God brings healing; When we confess our sin, God forgives; In Christ, through Christ and because of Christ, Our sins are forgiven. Thanks be to God. You refill the cup of life, O God. In Christ, we find refuge and strength. HYMN 407 ‘Breathe on me, breath of God’ THE PEACE May the peace of the Lord be with you.
