CALL TO CONFESSION
Let us confess our sins before an Almighty God. Please join me in a prayer of confession.
PRAYER OF CONFESSION (UNISON)
Creative, passionate God, you delight to shape the world in beauty and harmony. You invite us to participate in the balance of creation. We grow in wisdom as our experience unfolds; we take good learning out of difficult situations yet also find our well-meant endeavors leading to unintended consequences. Too often we give in to temptation that disrupts the joyous order of the universe. We cannot undo all our mistakes, but we can turn once more to the living presence of Jesus and find new ways to live and love each other and the earth. Do not let our hearts be fearful, but let us in silence acknowledge our sin and seek the forgiveness that restores your peace.
Time of silent prayer.
Assurance of Pardon
In Christ’s life, ministry, death and resurrection, we are made able to persist, upright and strong, for our sins are forgiven. Thanks be to God! AMEN
