as we go from here,
let us rid ourselves of every weight that slows us down,
especially the sin that so easily impedes our progress.
Let us run the race that God has set before us,
keeping our eyes on Jesus Christ,
on whom our faith depends, from start to finish.
And as we run,
know that the grace of Jesus Christ,
the love of God,
and the presence of the Holy Spirit,
is always with you.
