Call to Confession
All of sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Let us confess our sin and seek God's mercy:
Prayer of Confession, OT23B
In humility, we bow before the throne of grace
Our priorities are inconsistent
with the law of love:
We have put wealth before respectability,
power before equality,
and righteous anger before kindness;
We are greedy
in our quest for status
Forgive us, we pray.
Create in us a clean heart
and renew a right spirit within us
that we might live as children of light
in a world where darkness seems
Assurance of God's Grace
God is gracious and forgiving, removing our sin as far as the east is from the west, and remembering it no more. 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.
