CONFESSION AND SILENCE

BEACH SPRING

Amy Butler Rachel Alcázar-Román

When we become absorbed with ourselves, invite us to servanthood. When our pride makes us unable to see the pain of others, open our eyes. When our relationships and our hearts are broken, comfort us with your presence. When we are determined to remain at war with you, send us your peace. When our souls are empty, fill them with living water. When we are reluctant to follow, guide us in the right path. When we are distracted, call us to worship you in spirit and truth. God in Community, Holy in One, hear our silent confession.

INVOCATION PASSING THE PEACE OF CHRIST

Amy Butler Amy Butler Rachel Alcázar-Román

La paz del Señor sea contigo. Y contigo también. The peace of the Lord be with you. And also with you.
