CALL TO CONFESSION

PRAYER OF CONFESSION
Patient God,
   it is so easy for us to miss the point.
We know how to perform righteousness;
   we go to church, we donate, we volunteer,
   but we care more about how we are seen
   than our faithfulness to you.
We show off our piousness,
   instead of actually sharing our food,
   our homes, our resources
   with those in the most need.
Have mercy on us for the ways we serve ourselves,
   and teach us your way,
   the way that leads to justice and peace. Amen.

ASSURANCE OF GOD’S GRACE

*THE PEACE
The peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.
And also with you.
