Who is the Greatest?
Year 1 ( 2022 – 2023 )
The disciples ask about greatness. Jesus tells them to become like children, and to cast away stumbling blocks.
Prayer of Confession
you moved among us in Jesus –
the One who poured himself out with utter humility.
More often than not, we do not live as he did.
We hunger for greatness.
We disregard the needs of others,
and sow the seeds of division in the process.
Forgive us for our selfishness.
Heal our brokenness.
Help us to have the same mind,
the same love,
the same compassion,
the same humility of Christ.
