a community creating for the relentless return of Sunday

confession: the earth is yours

The earth is yours, O Lord,

and everything in it belongs to you.

We confess that we have treated “our own” as exclusive property

and cut off those in need from the gift of your abundance.

We have ignored orphans, widows, and foreigners,

as if there were someone else to care for them.

We confess that we have not looked closely enough at others,

and we have failed to see in our own lives

the abundant gift of your love.

Forgive us.

Restore us to wholeness,

and call us back to your way,

through the grace of Jesus Christ.
