Pastor: Christ our Lord invites to his table all who love him, who earnestly repent
of their sin and seek to live in peace with one another. Therefore, let us
confess our sin before God and one another.
People: God of mercy, you know us well. You have offered to us new life,
characterized by honesty, compassion, joy, and peace. You have invited us into
ministries of peace and justice, but we have far too often turned our back on
opportunities for service and witness to your transformational love. Forgive us
for our stubbornness. Help us to turn around and listen to your words of hope.
Remind us again that you require compassion and mercy in all who serve you
that you will guide our steps and our lives. Give us courage to truly be your
witnesses in this world. Amen.
*WORDS OF ASSURANCE
Even if you have transgressed and done what you know to be wrong, remember
that God will heal and forgive you; sending you on your way to become a person
of peace, hope, love and justice. Be at peace. God is with you. Amen.
