L How does God's love abide in anyone who has the world's goods and sees a brother or sister in need and yet refuses help? Little children, let us love, not in word or speech, but in truth and action. (1 John 3:17-18) Let us confess the ways we fail to love in truth and action.
Silence is kept for confession and reflection
L Shepherd me, O God
C …restore my soul, O Lord and guide me along right pathways for your name's sake. (Psalm 23:3)
L We know love by this that he laid down his life for us... And by this we will know that we are from the truth and will reassure our hearts before him whenever our hearts condemn us; for God is greater than our hearts… (1 John 3:16,19-20)
