CALL TO CONFESSION

UNISON PRAYER OF CONFESSION

Eternal God, Our judge and redeemer: we confess that we have tried to hide from You, for we have done wrong.  We have lived for ourselves.  We have refused to shoulder the troubles of others, and turned from our neighbors.  We have ignored the pain of the world, and passed by the hungry, the poor and the oppressed.  O God, in Your great mercy, forgive our sins and free us from selfishness, that we may choose Your will and obey Your commandments.  Amen
