The B.C. Catholic has a story from Edmonton's Ramon Gonzalez of the Western Catholic Reporter who covered a civic and business event with a focus on prayer:
We must confess our sin when we do wrong and must forgive others when they do wrong.

That’s the message evangelical leader and former businessman Jack Klemke brought to the Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast at the Shaw Conference Centre April 25.

Forgiveness, he said, is agreeing to live with the consequences of another person’s sin. “We need to accept God’s forgiveness. It is the cross that makes forgiveness legally and morally right. He died once to break the power of sin.”
