WELCOME

 

*CALL TO WORSHIP  

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good;

God’s love endures forever.

Let Israel say:

“God’s love endures forever.”

Let the house of Aaron say:

“God’s love endures forever.”

Let those who fear the LORD say:

“God’s love endures forever.”

Let us worship God!

Adapted from Psalm 118:1-4 NIV

PRAYER OF CONFESSION

Mothering God, you have loved us and tenderly care for us.  We are sorry for turning away from your compassion.  We are sorry for not loving you or our neighbor.  We are sorry for the grief we cause you because of our refusal to repent.  Please forgive us, and do not carry out your fierce anger against us.  Through your Son Jesus, you showed us your compassion and grace, and you lead us with cords of kindness.  Help us to accept your mercy.  Amen.
