Confession: Holy Humor Sunday

Here’s a prayer of confession for Holy Humor Sunday (aka Laughter Sunday), traditionally observed on the first Sunday after Easter.  It comes from the United Church of Christ’s Worship Ways website.

Prayer of Confession for Holy Humor Sunday

Redeeming God, 
with you there is always more life, more hope, more joy. 
Forgive us for doubting to see your work
in the still things, the busy things, the darkest moment 
and the everyday, under-noticed plod of life. 
Forgive us when we balk at action, 
and refuse to turn on fully the tap of compassion, settling for a mere trickle. 
Open us now to your love that lets us relax into life, 
and fill us with trust, hope and justice. Amen.
