Rite of Reconciliation (aka Private Confession)

This is an opportunity to practice James 5:16, which encourages us to confess our sins to one another so that we might experience full healing and reconciliation with God, our brothers and sisters and our neighbors. Early on in the days of the Church, the Christian leaders recognized that sometimes the safest way to promote this practice was to encourage confession before trained leaders who would choose to forget what was heard. We want to encourage a spirit of such confession and repentance. In the Anglican tradition, the rite of reconciliation is done with an ordained priest. We will be offering the Rite of Reconciliation this Saturday here at Union from 3 to 5 p.m. in 20 minute slots. To sign up for a slot, visit this link: http://tinyurl.com/valpoconfession.
