A call to confession and a declaration of forgiveness submitted by Rev. Laura Becker, Northminster Presbyterian Church in Chattanooga TN.
Call to Confession:
If we are honest with ourselves, we must admit that we all make mistakes. There are things we do – and there are things we neglect to do – that separate us from God, from one another, from ourselves. So trusting in the infinite grace of God, let us confess our mistakes and our longing for God.
Words of Assurance:
Hear the good news! In Jesus Christ, we are made new and offered the chance to begin again.
Believe the good news! We are forgiven. Amen.
