|Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)|
God, our Creator and Protector, you gave us your Son to walk among us and teach us the true meaning of love for one another. It is a wonder to us that we who are so small should deserve this gift. Yet we are made in your image, and you are the heart of our hearts. It is too wonderful to imagine! Forgive us when we ignore the presence of the Spirit. Forgive us when we are unkind. Forgive our selfishness. Open our eyes to the glory of your Truth, so we may be always your Easter people. We pray in the name of the Christ, Amen.
|(A moment for silent reflection)|
|Assurance of Pardon|
Hear the Good News! Who is in a position to condemn? Only Christ, and Christ died for us, Christ rose for us, Christ reigns in power for us, Christ prays for us.
Anyone who is in Christ is a new creation. The old life has gone; a new life has begun. Know you are forgiven and be at peace. Amen.
