|Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)|
You are the Holy One, Creator of all. Over the ages you have brought light from darkness, lifted life from dust, and poured color over the earth. Your works are beautiful, and our blessings without number. To us you gave responsibility for creation and for one other, a glorious trust. We should rejoice, but so often we take this gift for granted. Help us to honor your trust and to bless each life. Forgive us when we destroy without thought, especially pain caused to those less fortunate. Even as we receive mercy, let us be merciful, and to love as you love us. Always we pray in Jesus Christ, Amen.
|(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.

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