Forgiveness is the act of setting someone free from an obligation to you that is a result of a wrong done against you. All of us, at one time or another, have been forgiven, or granted forgiveness.

As we come tonight to observe the Lord's supper I want to remind you that it is the policy of this church not to dictate who can participate in the Lord's supper and who cannot participate in the Lord's supper.
