Prayer of Confession
We confess we fail to listen to one another. We focus on what we want and blame one another. We see the future and yearn for the past. We see traditions and assume they are outdated. Help us to listen to one another so that we might learn the wisdom of the young and the creativity and passion of the old. Help us to be the one body of Christ made up of many parts. Amen.
You are God’s beloved. Whether you are old or young or somewhere in between, you’re beloved. Whether you are cantankerous or boisterous, you’re beloved. Whether you’re blindly optimistic or mired in pessimism, you’re beloved. The Good News is we are all beloved and all important parts of the one body of Christ. Share this Good News with your neighbor.
