Hearing The Good News

Prayer of Confession (unison)
O Lord of mercy,
who resists the proud and receives the humble,
we ask for honesty to accept responsibility for our errors
and to understand the reasons for our failures.
We ask for the courage to make our confessions,
to seek your forgiveness for our offenses,
to make restitution where possible and to
extend the same forgiveness to others that you extend to us.
May we have the grace to submit our lives to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. For all our sins, O Lord, forgive us. Amen.

Words Of Assurance
The “Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.” (Isaiah 1:18)

WE GATHER IN PRAISE

Prelude
Welcome

Gospel Jam: Amen | VU #211 Crown Him |
VU #229 God of the Sparrow

Call To Worship (unison)
God – we gather in your presence.
Father – we long for more of you.
Jesus – we place you at the centre.
Holy Spirit – come and fill our time together.
Help us to be fully present here, to your word,
to one another through this medium of
Facebook and the Internet, and to the world
that you created and the world that you love. Amen.

Hearing The Good News

Prayer of Confession (unison)
God of light and life​, you set before us today
the challenges of laying aside the works of darkness;
of putting on the light of Christ;
of being watchful and prepared for your coming in our midst
in the person of Jesus Christ.

As the people of God in this place,
we know that a crucial part of our witness
is in revealing Christ to the world
through the way we love and care for one another.

Forgive us when people do not see any evidence in us
of the One who is to come.
So many people, young and old, grope helplessly
in the gloom of despair and suffering,
yearning for the light of hope to dawn in their lives.
Remind us that the light of Christ shines through people like us.

Merciful God​, cleanse our hearts and minds of all that hinders us
from loving you and loving our neighbour.
So that our lives radiate faith active in love,
as we watch and wait for your breaking into our world once more
in the person of Jesus Christ. ​Amen

Words Of Assurance
The mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting.
May the God of mercy, who forgives us all our sins,
strengthen us in all goodness, and by the power of the
Holy Spirit keep us in eternal life.
People:
Amen.
