Confession (based on Worship Ways):
One: Holy God, your cry for wisdom and understanding echoes in our homes, our workplaces, our schools, our church committee meetings, our legislatures and our courts.
Many: We confess we don’t always want to hear that cry, deciding instead to rely on familiar habits, comfortable assumptions, and quick conclusions.
One: We ask you to show us another way, O God.
All: Show us another way.
Assurance of Grace
One: Hear this good news: God continually shows us another way. God’s mercy is as wide as the ocean. God’s desire to forgive is as strong as the mighty wind. So let your hearts receive the outpouring of God’s love through the Holy Spirit. Amen.
