INVITATION

Christ our Lord invites to his table all who love him,
    who earnesly repent of their sin
    and seek to live in peace with one another.

Hear the good news:
    Christ died for us while we were yet sinners;
    that proves God's  love toward us.
In the name of Jesus Christ, you are forgiven!

In the name of Jesus Christ, you are forgiven!

Glory to God.  Amen.
