Hard for You to Say I'm Sorry? There's Help!

Do you ever feel like you have regrets and want to admit them but don't know how to put it into words? That's why Presbyterians have a Prayer of Confession in every worship service. When you are sorry for your sins and don't know what to say, the liturgy helps you say it.

During Lent we are going to sing "I'm sorry," not just say it. We're going to sing a version of Kyrie Eleison by the Ghanian musician Dinah Reindorf. "Kyrie Eleison" is Greek for, "Lord, have mercy." Here's what it sounds like:

The Good News is that God forgives you! And that raises a second question. Do you ever feel thankful and grateful but don't know how to put that into words either? Again, the worship service can help you express your relief and happiness when you know that God has forgiven you. During Lent we're going to sing "We Are Forgiven" by the American composer Hal Hopson after we confess our sins. Click here to listen to the tune.

Sing about your sorrows and joys at First Presbyterian Church on Sundays in Lent.
