CONFESSION AND FORGIVENESS
Fountain of living water, pour out your mercy over us. Our sin is heavy, and we long to be free. Rebuild what we have ruined
and mend what we have torn. Wash us in your cleansing flood. Make us alive in the Spirit to follow in the way of Jesus,
as healers and restorers of the world you so love. Beloved, God’s word never fails. The promise rests on grace: by the saving love of Jesus Christ, the wisdom and power of God, your sins are ☩ forgiven, and God remembers them no more. Journey in the way of Jesus. Amen.

PRAYER OF THE DAY
O God, by the passion of your blessed Son you made an instrument of shameful death to be for us the means of life.

Amen.
