|Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)|
God, you are our God, and we stand before you as your children, fully human yet created in your image. We are grateful to be yours, people of the Way. We sing praises for the many gifts we have received, and for the victory of the Cross; yet we struggle with our understanding of you. We try to define you by what we know and who we are, and at times feel alienated or afraid of labels and images. Forgive us our distrust, dear Lord, and let our hearts be filled with your steadfast presence and abiding love. Let this light that is you cast out the darkness of doubt and free us to live in the heart of your creation! We pray in Jesus’ name. 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.

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

Lord, open our hearts and minds by the power of your Holy Spirit, that as the Scriptures are read and your Word is proclaimed, we may hear with joy what you say to us today. Amen
