A Confession After the Orlando Shooting

Confession of Sin responsive

Senzenina.
What have we done?

We watch as our children are shot down in their school.
What have we done?

We watch as men and women are shot down while studying the Bible.
What have we done?

We watch as our LGBTQ siblings are shot down at the end of a long week.
What have we done?

Too many God! Too much hatred!
What have we done?

Senzenina. What have we done?
Forgive us, God, for we have sinned. In our every moment use us to be love and justice in the world. Amen.

This confession can be preceded or followed by the singing of Senzenina (What Have I Done?) from the Power of One soundtrack by Hans Zimmer.

 

 

 

Tim is a runner, a hiker, a devoted husband, a father of two adult children, and their spouses, and a grandfather of four perfect children. A former early childhood educator, Tim is an ordained minister in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). He has served as pastor of both Disciples and United Church of Christ congregations. As we enter what we hope is the final phase of the pandemic, Tim is beginning a journey of rediscovering himself and discerning next steps. He writes from his home in Albany, Oregon and wherever the Spirit lures him.
