Confession of Whining

L: Let us confess before God and one another that we have whined.

C: (whining) I DON’T WANNA

 

L: You have worked in us to will and to act.

C: DO WE HAVE TO?

 

L: According to your good purpose you have called us to be like stars.

C: STARS ARE STUPID

 

L: I have poured myself as a drink offering for you.

C: WHATEVER.

 

L: I have sacrificed myself for your good, even unto death.

C: SO WHAT?

L: and I did it without complaining.


(silence)

 

C: God, we have whined, we have complained,

we have bargained,

we have dodged,

and yet you still love us.

 

C: Teach us to take the nature of a servant, humbling ourselves,

becoming obedient,

even to the death of ourselves,

that we may be more like Jesus everyday.

 

C: Your will, not ours be done.

AMEN.
