Advent Litany of Confession

Silence for Confession

Leader: We confess…

All: that we see ourselves in the story of the beggars who have come before.

Leader: We read in Scripture that… ‘In those days–Israel had no king; everyone did as they saw fit.’

All: We confess that we live our lives the same way–not wanting to acknowledge Jesus as King or not living like it’s true.

Leader: We confess…

All: that we often do not bother to listen for Your voice or want to ascribe authority to You.

Leader: Forgive us God…

All: For being more concerned with looking for signs than what the signs are pointing to.
