PRAYER OF CONFESSION
Jesus Christ, you are dazzling in your glory, but we are no longer amazed. Forgive us when we explain away your miracles or try to contain your mystery. Open us again to your holiness, and give us a glimpse of your true glory, that in your mercy, we may shine forth in love...
Silent Prayers of confession
WORDS OF ASSURANCE
It is the God who said, “Let light shine out of darkness” who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. (2 Corinthians 4:6) The good news is that we are not only enlightened by our belief in Christ, we are cleansed and we are forgiven!
Thanks be to God!
