CALL TO CONFESSION

          One: Psalms have always helped us remember. In the times when God’s voice seems weak, or absent, God’s people have always strengthened themselves by remembering when God was loud and in their faces. God met them with a mysterious mix of forgiveness of sin, but also a kind of “vengeance for wrong deeds.” How does God meet us on this Sabbath day? Let us pray.

PRAYER OF CONFESSION (together)

          ALL: GOD, PLEASE FORGIVE US. IT SEEMS, AT TIMES, THAT WE WANT ALL THE WRONG THINGS. WE DON’T EVEN WANT TO THINK THAT WE HAVE SINNED: WE WOULD RATHER YOU JUST FORGET WHAT WE HAVE DONE. WE DON’T WANT TO LIVE WITH THE CONSEQUENCES OF OUR WRONG CHOICES, WE JUST WANT EVERYTHING TO BE OKAY. BUT YOUR PROMISE IS DIFFERENT. YOU PROMISE TO FORGIVE, NOT FORGET. YOU PROMISE THAT WE WILL LIVE WITH THE RESULTS OF OUR “WRONG DEEDS”, EVEN THOUGH YOU PLEDGE TO LOVE US. IN THIS QUIET TIME, HELP US SEE WHERE WE HAVE LIVED IN CONFLICT WITH YOUR SPIRIT, AND HELP US RETURN TO YOUR LOVE.

Period of Silent Confession

DECLARATION OF PARDON

          One: Friends, hear the good news of the gospel and believe. It is completely reliable, and ought to be universally accepted that Christ died to redeem sinners. He rose to defeat the power of death and hatred, fear and greed to rule the world, that love might prevail. By the authority of Jesus Christ, I declare that your sin is lifted, and you are free!

          ALL: THANKS BE TO GOD!
