I got a little bored with the normal Prayer of Confession formulation this week so I wrote it like a set of instructions. I know confessing ourselves before God isn't as simple as assembling some flat pack furniture, but I think I complicated it enough that it makes sense.

The image of the whirlwind from the 2 Kings and the Psalm stuck me particularly heavily this week. The text says that the LORD was "about to take Elijah up to heaven by a whirlwind" and that got me thinking: How do you prepare for a whirlwind? Here the whirlwind isn't some destructive force, it is a sign of God's power and presence. Encountering God can indeed twirl us around, shake us up, in ways that don't always feel great, but ultimately the whirlwind is a part of the journey of faith. God is there in the whirlwind with us even as we ask, "Where is God?" even when we see no foot prints... I vaguely remember a poem about footprints... it'll come to me later... haha.

Busy week so just a short liturgy. Sometimes, doing something way shorter than the congregation is used to, like this confession litany, and going through it slowly can be very interesting. The space between things takes on as much meaning as the words themselves. Click continue reading for the copy/paste-able version. Thanks for reading.
