confession: grace upon grace

One:            You give us grace upon grace,

All:            but we often hold tightly to other things instead.

One:            You make your home among us,

All:            but we often fill our lives with other things instead.

One:            You call us to friendship,

All:            but we are so busy, we don’t have time.

One:            Forgive us, God,

All:            for our out of order priorities,

                        our too-full homes and calendars,

                        our self-importance.

One:            Come again and dwell with us,

speak to us, show us your love,

and orient our lives around You, our true center.

All:            Amen.
