How to replace glass pane in an interior french door?

I have a pair of french doors to my den. The panes are glass and one of the glass panes is broken. The doors look similar to this set at Lowe's

How do I replace the glass pane without destroying the door? I cannot seem to be able to remove the wooden molding surrounding the glass. I realize that one side should be removable but I cannot seem to get any loose.

If you can't tell which side is trimmed I'd score the outside of the trim on both sides of the door,one section only.Then insert a large pry bar into the space that the glass was in and GENTLY rock the bar back and forth. The idea is to "break" the trim loose without actually breaking the trim. I'd start at the center of the pane and gradually increase pressure if not successful.
