“The Surrounding Voices”

January 28, 2024
Prayer of Confession We come on this holy day to speak of how we live.  Politicians, celebrities, and talk show folks have become our so-called gods. Our choices often cause those around us to trip over our anger and slip on our pride. The words we speak to others show how we often want very little to do with You. Forgive us, Holy God, and have mercy on us. May we silence our fears, so words of hope may be spoken. May we give thanks not only with our hearts, but with the grace we can share with others. May justice and peace be the tools we use, as we serve beside Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.
