Confession of Settling

Leader: God of all, we confess we have settled.

We have settled for the easy way,

the simple profit, the comfort of ease.

All: We have settled for luxury at the sacrifice of dignity. We have settled for what is rather than what can be.

 

Leader: We have settled for the complexity of living rather than the simplicity of living in you.

All: We have settled for cowardly reason

at the sacrifice of trust.

 

Leader: Forgive us God, for our cynicism.

Forgive us God, for our shortsightedness.

All: Forgive us God, for believing the lie

that nothing can changed,

that we cannot make a difference,

that we don’t matter in the world.

 

All: Forgive us, change us, and lead us

that we may delight in your will

and walk in your ways.

To the glory of your name, we say.

AMEN.
