Confession -Maundy Thursday

A time of silence as we enter into confession

Leader: In the name of Jesus, we confess…

All: That we are trapped in our own sin. And we cannot free ourselves.

Leader: We have chosen…

All: Anger over joy, violence over peace, and pain over love.

 

Leader: We have chosen…

All: Knowledge over faith, certainty over doubt, and security over trust in your unfailing love.
Leader: We have chosen…

All: to walk our own path, to satisfy our own needs, and to humiliate those in our way.

 

Leader: By our own fault…

All: our neighbors are hungry, suffering, dying, and without hope.
Leader: By our own fault…

All: families are torn apart and hearts are left empty.

 

Leader: By our own fault…

All: the world that you created is being crucified.
Leader: Our lives are broken…

All: by the sin of those around us and by the sin that lives in our hearts.

 

Leader: In your unending mercy and grace…

All: have mercy on us.
Leader: Forgive us in the name of your Son Jesus Christ…

All: who boldly took on death that we might have life.

 

Leader: We confess…
All: in the name of Jesus.

Amen
