L ...do not grieve the Holy Spirit… (but) put away from you all bitterness and wrath and anger and wrangling and slander, together with all malice, and be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ has forgiven you. (Ephesians 4:30-32) Let us confess the ways we grieve the Holy Spirit.
Silence is kept for confession and reflection
L Proclaim with me the greatness of the LORD;
C I will bless the Lord at all times and the praise of God shall ever be in my mouth. (Psalm 34:1, 3)
L Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children, and live in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. (Ephesians 5:1-2)
