a community creating for the relentless return of Sunday

confession: all mortal flesh

Liturgist:
Let all mortal flesh keep silence,
and with fear and trembling stand.
We rest in your silence O God,
offering up our prayers from the depths
of our hearts.

(a time of silence is kept)

Handbells play Picardy

Liturgist:
Help us, Oh Lord, set our minds on things eternal.
For with blessings in our hands
we worship the child born in Bethlehem,
and not any other earthly thing
that would command our homage.
Forgive us for believing that earthly powers
could save us.

(a time of silence is kept)

Handbells play Picardy

Liturgist:
King of kings, yet born of Mary,
once upon the earth he stood;
Lord of lords, may we now perceive him
in the people we meet on this journey.
Forgive us for the time we have not
welcomed the stranger as
we would welcome your Son.
In this time of Advent waiting,
may we see our connectedness,
one to another.

(a time of silence is kept)

Handbells play Picardy

Liturgist:
Let all mortal flesh keep silence,
and with fear and trembling stand.

Call us back to you, again and again,
and in gratitude, with ceaseless voice we cry:
“Alleluia, alleluia!
Alleluia, Lord Most High!” Amen
