confession: in it together

Written by a confirmation class reflecting on the combination of Deuteronomy 6 and 1 Corinthians 12.
Submitted by Rev. Teri Peterson, Ridgefield-Crystal Lake Presbyterian Church

One: God, for running from you and your love,
All: forgive us.
One: For being too cautious,
or not cautious enough, in your presence,
All: forgive us.
One: For failing to listen to you when you call out to be heard,
All: forgive us.
One: For taking your love for granted,
and for not showing enough appreciation to you, O Lord,
All: forgive us.
One: For fearing those different from ourselves,
All: forgive us.
One: for when we feel we can accomplish things on our own,
and forget your or others’ help,
All: forgive us.
