Call to Confession
All of us have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Let us confess our sin before God and seek God's mercy.
Prayer of Confession, Christ the King Sunday, Year C
Watch out! You said, O God.
You warned those who scattered your sheep
and drove them away.
You warned those who did not attend
to the needs of your lambs.
You warned us there would be consequences.
Still we have not heeded your warning.
Instead, we have sought to do exactly
what you warned us not to do,
we have divided ourselves: us against them;
We have constructed barriers to keep the other out.
We are not whom you have called us to be.
Forgive us, we pray.
Teach us to shepherd your people
with mercy and compassion.
Teach us to live the kind of justice
that creates a world where no one needs to fear
or dread harm,
Where your people live together in harmony
Assurance of God's Grace
God kept God’s promise to raise up a righteous descendant from David’s line, and he has become our Righteousness. In the name of Jesus Christ, we are forgiven. Thanks be to God!
Since God has forgiven us in Christ, let us also forgive one another. The peace of Christ be with you.
Please extend the peace of Christ to all whom you encounter this day~
