INVITATION TO CONFESSION
Each week as a community we set aside time to admit our sin
before God and one another.
Some of our sins are personal and others are communal.
Some we confess on the part of the whole human race.
God already knows and God’s grace is already available.
We confess in order to speak truth to ourselves.
Let us pray:

O Holy God, we know we have made poor choices:
we turned our backs when an embrace was needed,
we remained silent when called to speak,
We kept on talking when listening and silent presence would have been right.
We closed the door when it needed to be flung wide open.
We judged when we failed to understand.
We hardened our hearts when you would have us open our hands and give.
Forgive us, O God,
and help us to continue to grow into the people you created us to be,
through Christ our Lord. Hear now our silent confessions…

ASSURANCE OF GRACE AND FORGIVENESS

Friends, hear the Good News: the mercy of God is from everlasting to everlasting.
In Jesus Christ, we are forgiven. Thanks be to God! Alleluia, amen.
