Confession and Pardon              
Dr. Brian Miller

 My sisters and brothers, Christ shows us his love by becoming a humble servant.  Let us draw near to God and confess our sin in the truth of God’s Spirit.

 Most merciful God, we your Church confess that often our spirit has not been that of Christ.  Where we have failed to love one another as he loves us, where we have pledged loyalty to him with our lips and then betrayed, deserted, or denied him, forgive us, we pray; and by your Spirit make us faithful in every time of trial; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen. 

 Who is in a position to condemn?  Only Christ.  But Christ suffered and died for us, was raised from the dead and ascended on high for us, and continues to intercede for us.  Believe the good news.  In the name of Jesus Christ, we are forgiven!

 Glory to God.  Amen. 

 Great Thanksgiving
