CALL TO CONFESSION
PRAYER OF CONFESSION
you come to us in many colors, shapes, and languages.
You speak to each of us in the way we can understand.
You reach out to us and meet us where we are.
But we are quick to limit you
to what we can understand and control.
and set your Spirit loose among us.
Challenge us, surprise us,
and open us to your power,
that we might know you more deeply,
follow you more faithfully,
and love more fully.
