Confession of Denial

Leader: Holy God, Holy and Mighty, Holy and Immortal.

all: Have mercy on us.

 

leader:
Let us come before God and one another, laying our sin before the altar with the desire to be made clean.


*silence*

 

leader: Most merciful God,

all: We confess that we deny you.

 

men: We know your words,

we know your law,

we know your justice,

yet we deny you.

 

women: We know your face,

we know your heart,

we know your vision for a new world,

yet we deny you.

 

men: we deny you by what we do.

 

women: we deny you by what we do not do.

 

all: For Jesus’ sake, forgive us.

Show us your mercy and grant us peace.

Amen.
