Confession

February 7, 2021

Forgive us Lord, for we have sinned.

We have allowed technology to command our focus and fracture our attention.

We have closed our hearts and isolated ourselves, retreating from our fellow citizens.

We have followed the false gods of money and power and celebrity, and so lost our way.

Free us O Lord to see our world as it is; open our eyes to its needs.

Free us O Lord from our loneliness; help us create connected, resilient communities.

Return us O Lord to the right paths; help us to ensure the safety, the tranquility, the dignity of all.

Let us heed your admonition to turn from evil and do good, to seek and pursue peace. (Ps 34:14)

Forgive us, and lead us, O Lord.

Amen
