We confess that we are in danger of losing connection with the earth
We have lost the art of walking bare foot on bare soil
We forget that we do not own the ground we walk on
We seldom tread gently enough
Forgive us, loving God
We confess that we are in danger of losing connection with others
We stand alone rather than walk side by side
We stamp our feet and make selfish demands
We tread on each others’ toes
Forgive us, loving God.
We have been impatient and unkind,
with ourselves and others.
We have been jealous, boasted
and let pride into our hearts.
But you are not easily angered;
you do not keep a record of our wrongs.
Bring us back to your Truth that we may rejoice.
Protect us and support as we hope, trust and persevere.
Jesus, through you this is possible.
