Words of Assurance: Proper 5 C

Here are words of assurance (to follow confession) based on the suggested scripture readings for Proper 5 C (the third Sunday after Pentecost) – especially Psalm 30 and Luke 7: 11-17).  It was written by Nathan Nettleton.

Declaration of Grace / Absolution

Christ Jesus has not come to punish sin with death,
but to call us through God’s grace
and, in compassion, to raise us from death to life
through the word of truth, the gospel.

Sisters and Brothers,
    your sins are forgiven;
        be at peace.
