All: Holy God, we confess to you that we have coveted comfort at the risk of your mission.
Women: We have sought the places where we feel safe at the cost of the places you have called us to live and serve.
Men: We have hidden ourselves behind the usual, the normal, the ordinary.
Women: We have holed ourselves in our homes, our workplaces, and our church
All: Forgive us God for the sin of comfort, for settling for the usual when we are called to live the unusual;
Men: for being satisfied with the ordinary when we are called to the extraordinary.
Women: for seeking normal when our walk is to be anything but.
All: Through your Spirit, make us new. Transfigure us into your image and call us into the fullness of life you desire for your whole creation.
