Call to Worship (I John 4:16)
Leader: The Lord be with you.
People: And also with you.Leader: God is Love.
People: And those who abide in love abide in God,
Leader: And God abides in them
Prayer of Confession (in unison)
you poured your Spirit upon gathered disciples, creating bold tongues, open ears, and a new community of faith.
We confess that we hold back the force of your Spirit among us.
We do not listen for your word of grace, speak the good news of your love, or live as a people made one in Christ.
Have mercy on us, O God,
transform our timid lives by the power of your Spirit,
and fill us with a flaming desire to be your faithful people,
doing your will for the sake of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
Declaration of Forgiveness
Leader: Who is to condemn? It is Christ Jesus, who died, yes, who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who indeed intercedes for us. (Rom 8:34)
People: So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new! (II Cor. 5:17)
