Confession and Absolution

Lord God,

We have not always done as we ought. We have looked to the cross and seen death instead of life in your Son. We have looked at others and seen who we think we should be instead of who you created us to be. We have taken the gifts you have given us, and tried to turn them into the gifts we think we should have. Grant in us O God  the power to see ourselves and others as you see us.

Isaiah writes: “Then the Lord GOD will wipe away the tears from all faces, and the disgrace of his people he will take away from all the earth, for the LORD has spoken.” I declare that all your sins are forgiven in the name of the Father + and the Son + and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
