Prayer of the Day (Bob)

Let us pray.

Almighty Creator and ever-living God:  We worship your glory, eternal Three-in-One, and we praise your power, majestic One-in-Three.  Keep us steadfast in this faith, defend us in all adversity, and bring us at last into your presence, where you live in endless joy and love, Father, Son, And Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

Call to Confession (Bob)

The Lord watches over our ways.  Let us put our trust in God’s grace and confess our sins.

 

Confession and Prayer (Bob)

Holy God:  

                   We confess that we are caught in snares of sin and cannot break free.  We hoard resources while our neighbors are hungry and cold.  We speak in ways that silence others.  We are silent when we should speak up. We keep score in our hearts.  We let hurts grown into hatred.  For all these things and for sins only you know, forgive us, Lord.

(All God’s children say) Amen.

 

 

Personal Confession (Community)

   Please take a moment for your private prayers of personal confession.

(Water pours to break the silence)

 

Assurance of Pardon (Bob)

In Christ Jesus, God has promised to forgive us and reconcile us to God and each other.  With joy, let us share that peace with one another…

 

Passing the Peace (Bob)

Having been reconciled with God, let’s be reconciled with each other.  All God’s children say:

The peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.

And also with you.

Affirmation of Faith – the Apostle’s Creed

Preacher of the Day leads all to read together.

 

I believe in God, the Father Almighty,

creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,

who was conceived by the Holy Spirit

and born of the virgin Mary,

He suffered under Pontius Pilate,

was crucified, died, and was buried;

he descended to hell.

The third day he rose again from the dead.

He ascended to heaven

and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty.

From there he will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,

the holy catholic* church,

the communion of saints,

the forgiveness of sins,

the resurrection of the body,

and the life everlasting. Amen

*That is, the true Christian church of all times and all places.
