Leader: Glory in God’s holy name;
All: let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.
Opening prayer of confession
Loving and merciful God, you have created us, and every part of the world we live in. We see glimpses of you in even the least expected places. Yet we try to hide from you. We try to wonder away from your truth. Forgive us. May we continue to know your truth and see your love in every part of our lives. (Silent prayer) Amen.
Assurance of Pardon:
God has forgiven us and claimed every part of us. Know this, and believe you are forgiven.
Thanks be to God.
