Prayer of Adoration & Confession (unison)
We rejoice, O God, in your splendor and your grace. We rejoice in your love for us. No cloud can keep your light from shining, no pain destroy our hope, for you are with us, always. Yet when our lives are good, we find no need for you. And when there is trouble, we wonder where you are. Forgive us, Lord, our doubt. Lead us back to you when we stray, and help us listen for your voice in this noisy world. For without you, we are empty, and with you, we are fulfilled. We ask in Jesusò=ý@C

(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.
