No new 'messiahs'

Prayer of Confession today at church:

Lord of Life, we come together to hear the words of scripture, to sing, to pray, and to find an alternative way of being in this commercial vortex we call Christmas. Something doesn't feel right when we walk in the mall, or hear another tale of political corruption. We are looking for something to believe in, but we are so often disappointed by the latest self-appointed messiah. Perhaps we should not appoint another messiah, but pay attention to the one we already have. In the name of Jesus our Teacher and Lord we pray, Amen.

(Preacherman's forthcoming book.)
