Meeting Midway is a Podcast of Midway United Methodist Church in Alpharetta, GA.
Each week our pastors or special guests will share how the church relates to the real-world issues that matter to you.
Christ our Lord invites to his table all who love him,
who earnestly repent of their sin
and seek to live in peace with one another.
Therefore, let us confess our sin
before God and one another.

God of Forgiveness,
hear now the confession of our sins.
Our greed and our lust for power create enemies where we should find friends. We fail to offer comfort and aid to those who are afraid and beat down by the burdens of life.

We are as blind and willful as Saul to the pain
and the destruction of our wrongdoings
and our well-meaning crusades.
Forgive us, Merciful One.

Give us sight to see with your eyes,
that we may bring hope and peace to our world. Amen.

God’s anger lasts but a moment, but God’s favor lasts a lifetime.
The Lord forgives our shortcomings and sends deliverance through Christ,
just as the Lord forgave Saul and used him to spread the gospel.

Thanks be to God!
Christ is risen!
The Lord is risen indeed!
Glory and honor, dominion and power,
be to God for ever and ever!
Christ is risen! Alleluia!

 In you, O Lord, I seek refuge; let me never be put to shame;
in your righteousness, deliver me!
Incline your ear to me, rescue me speedily!
Be a rock of refuge for me, a strong fortress to save me!
You are indeed my rock and my fortress;
for your name’s sake lead me and guide me;
take me out of the net which is hidden for me, for you are my refuge.
Into your hand I commit my spirit;
you have redeemed me, O Lord, faithful God.
