Fourth Sunday after Pentecost – June 12, 2016
The greatest gift that Christ has given us is the forgiveness of our sin. This forgiveness not only grants us life eternal, but it frees us to live fully and joyfully in the here and now. We are all prone to sin — it is our inheritance from our first parents. But through Christ, we receive the good news of a new and right relationship with God through Jesus’ loving-kindness and mercy. Blessed are those who are forgiven!
