Lent a Great Time for: Confession?
This past week I was able to talk about confession in Children’s Chapel as well as the service I’m a part of at the Pasadena Police Station memorializing the life of a young black father who was murdered by the Pasadena Police Department. I often forget that confession is a part of my Episcopal heritage. At both services we were able to write confessions using water color pencils and dump them into the water. This causes our confession to be absolved and dissolved into the water. The act of saying I messed up is powerful. But is confession in itself enough? What happens when we really really mess up? In Children’s Chapel we tried to think of examples of what we could do that would cause God to stop loving us — we couldn’t. Just like the water being poured over the stair case at the police station step- God’s love pours over us even when we make really big mistakes.
