Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison) (unison)
God our Creator, you are generous beyond understanding. You have given us the gift of your son, the Christ. You have provided a light to show us the way to his love, and a path to forgiveness. Your promise is one of hope and acceptance, and we give thanks to you, our Lord. Forgive us our many sins and failings! Take the darkness from our eyes, so we can see your truth! Make our hands the hands of healers, our hearts the hearts of giving, our words the words of kindness. As we are forgiven, let us forgive. We ask in Jesus

(A moment for silent reflection)

Assurance of Pardon
Who is in a position to condemn? Only Christ, and Christ died for us, was risen for us, and reigns in power over us. Sisters and brothers hear this good news. Through Christ we are forgiven and reconciled with the Creator of all.
