Another wonderful piece of liturgy from Teri Peterson! And thanks to LiturgyLink.net for sharing this with us! One: Do you not perceive it All: No, God, we confess that often we are blind to the new thing you are doing. One: So often we are not looking, and sometimes we choose not to see. All: We are comfortable with the way things are—we weary of the call to your newness. One: Sometimes we see, but our hearts are hardened and we look away, making excuses. All: But you call us to respond, to live in your kingdom now. One: Forgive our status-quo caution, our focus on self-preservation rather than on your kingdom. All: Forgive our narrow vision and insistence that you fit into our plans. One: Open us to the movement of your Spirit, All: and give us hearts ready to be generous in response.
sung: Kyrie Eleison
