a community creating for the relentless return of Sunday

confession: who we serve

Holy and merciful God,

in your presence we confess

our failure to be what you created us to be.

You call us to be your people,

but we have allowed ourselves to serve other powers.

We have ignored your call to stand for justice,

choosing instead the path of least resistance

or greatest return on investment.

We find ourselves stuck in patterns and relationships

that we no longer know how to change.

Turn to us again, liberating God!

Forgive us our sins and free us from our bondage.

Restore us to the life you created us to live,

through the power of Jesus Christ.
