Confession of Fear

Leader: O God, we confess we are afraid

All: of following where you lead,
of doing what you ask of us,
of living our faith out loud.

Leader: We are afraid
All: of making the wrong decision, of going the wrong way, of trusting there is a path set before us.

Leader: We are afraid

All: of letting go of the things that weigh us down,
of holding on to things that we do not understand

 

Leader: We are afraid
All: of loving the stranger, of giving of our things to another, of inviting the different into our lives.

Leader: Give us peace, Lord God.
All: That we may have courage to love as we have been loved, to share what has been shared, to change what needs to be changed.

Leader: Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world,
All: Have mercy on us.
