*Praise and Worship                                                                     (See insert)                                                        

Leader: O God, who fashioned the covenant and sealed it with the promise   
             of life everlasting
People: we praise you for mercies that are boundless and sure.
Leader: Your ways are just, your grace is unending.
People: Fill us now with your Spirit, as we gather before you; and teach us
             your way, for we seek to be faithful.
Leader: Help us make our prayer of confession,
People: O God of forgiveness, we pray for new life as we confess our old  
Leader: We hear of your promise amid our own sense of self-doubt.
People: Hope is proclaimed, yet we seek guarantees.
Leader: Christ calls us to obedience, but we set conditions.
People: When called on to follow, we ask to what end.
Leader: We applaud commitment, but we treasure our comfort.
People: Forgive our reluctance to walk in newness of life. Amen.
Leader: Although he was as we are, Jesus “learned obedience through what he suffered; and being made perfect he became the source of eternal salvation to all who obey him.” Today, as we come before God confessing our sins, Jesus the high priest is our source of forgiveness. Trust in the word of Christ and be forgiven. Amen
