Reconciling with God & Neighbor
Prayer of Confession Together
Creating One: We confess we don’t always act and live as you dream for us. We pretend we are the only ones who belong. We reject our neighbors who are different or annoy us. We treat the very earth from which we are created as a thing, forgetting that like us it is a living entity. We confess we forget that we belong to one another, to the earth, and to you O God.
Assurance of Grace
Despite mistakes and imperfections, you still belong to God. It is not conditional. God forgives you and remains with you. Remind your neighbor of their belonging in God’s world and love.
*Passing of the Peace
As do you.
