Call to Confession - Jim Frey

   Leader: No matter where we have been, where we are or where we are going, God is there. No matter what we have done, God loves us. In the certainty of God's love, let us honestly confront our shortcomings as we pray together.

Prayer of Confession (Unison)   

     God of great love, we clearly remember the times when we have thought you to be less than loving. We recall with pain the dark times in our lives when we could not see your light; nor did we seek it. We remember with remorse the occasions when we did not live in light of the love we have received. We confess that we have been quick to criticize and hasty to condemn. Forgive us for all that has come before and grant us grace to go forward in your forgiving love. Amen. 

Assurance of Pardon (Responsively) -  Jim Frey

   Leader: My friends, listen to this good news: God is always present to us, even when we are not present to God. And the love of God never lets us go, even in the times when we are wounded beyond words and let go of God. You are forgiven! 

        People: Thanks be to God! Amen.

Choral Response                            “Gloria Patri”       

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost! As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end.  Amen. Amen.
