CONFESSION OF SINS

Almighty and Most Merciful Father, we come before You, acknowledging our sins,
our shortcomings, and our breaking of our Covenant with You.

Not only have we done things we ought not to have done, said things we ought not
to have said, left undone so many things we ought to have done and been silent when
we should have witnessed for You.

Not only are we guilty of that, O Lord; but we have also closed our eyes and
pretended not to see the injustices, the racism and the evil which pervade our
everyday lives.

We have shut our ears and pretended not to hear the cries for liberation which come
from the lips, lives and hearts of the oppressed - even our own Black brothers and
sisters!

Forgive us, O Lord, renew our courage and faith, and keep us ever mindful of Thy
great sacrifice. Hear us, we beseech Thee, as we come to You in love and worship
giving Your name the praise forevermore.

9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9

TO ALL OUR VISITORS ... To all who mourn and need comforting ... To all who
are friendless and want friendship ... To all who are oppressed and need liberation;
and to whosoever will come, Trinity opens its doors. Thank you for coming and may
God bless you.
