 CALL TO CONFESSION

UNISON PRAYER OF CONFESSION

 God of Easter, in the risen Christ you broke the power of

sin and evil.  And yet we still live in the tombs of forget-

fulness, anxiety and fear.  We have failed to love you

as we should.  We have neglected to love our neighbor.

We have even failed to love ourselves.…silent prayers

of confession…Forgive us, Lord.  Release us from

the tombs that terrify us, so that we can see your image

in one another and in your good creation.  Free us from

the grave of self-hatred, so that we can see ourselves as

your children.  Amen 

 * ASSURANCE OF PARDON

 One:       This is the word we have heard: God forgives our sins and raises us to new life!  This is the good news we declare: God leads us out of the tombs of sin and self-hatred to walk as Easter people in the light of Christ!

All:      Thanks be to God; Amen!

 

* GLORIA PATRI

 

Glory be to the Father, and to the son, and to the Holy Ghost, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end.  Amen.  Amen.
