Call to Confession Leader: God turns the desert into pools of water Ps. 107:6, 9, 35 and guides those who have gone astray. Let us confess to God the depth of our need, we may be saved from trouble.

Unison Prayer of Confession
Lord God, only you are holy. Yet we imagine that we are righteous, excusing our own faults while pointing out those of others. We are quick to lay burdens upon our neighbors but slow to help with their own. We take credit and give blame. In spite of the grace you have shown to us, we are slow to show mercy. Forgive us, O God, and wash us clean, that we may serve you with joy and thanksgiving. Amen.

(A moment for silent reflection)

Assurance of Pardon
Leader: Sisters and brothers, God has made a way where there
was no way. In Christ Jesus evil and death have been vanquished, and we live in a state of grace. Friends Believe the good news of the gospel!

People: In Jesus Christ, we are forgiven!

For thine is the Kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen.
