+Son, and of the Holy Spirit. We are called to return to the Lord with all our heart. Let us
confess our sin and seek reconciliation with God and neighbor.
Silence for reflection and self-examination.
you sent Jesus Christ to save the lost. We confess that we have strayed from you and
turned aside from your way. We fail in love, neglect justice, and ignore your truth. Have
mercy on us and wash away our sin. Create in us clean hearts for the sake of Jesus
Christ our Savior. Amen.
