Prayer of Confession: Charlotte Peterson
Christ, our shepherd and gate, we would rather chart our own course,
than be shepherded like sheep;
we would rather finds our own way, than see you as the Way;
we would rather be shepherds than sheep,
who are vulnerable and exposed.
Forgive us when we bleat our resistance, as you guide us to higher pastures.
Be our gate, our way to safe havens, where we can dwell with you secure. Amen.
