Sneak preview

While doing layout for this Sunday's Order of Worship, I'm moved by the Confession of Sin we'll be using. Since gracegiver and pinkroo will be joining me for worship this Sunday, this is a sneak preview of sorts:
Father in heaven, you invite us to bring our brokenness to you.
You invite us to bring our world’s brokenness to you.
You claim to be able to heal us and our world.

Yet we confess that we remain aloof from you.
We do not trust you with our pain.
We do not trust you with our guilt.
We do not trust you with our shame.
We do not trust you with our world.

Forgive us and renew us.
Teach us to live in hope.
Teach us to wait in hope.
Teach us to work in hope.

Bring your kingdom. We need it. Our world needs it.
