Sermon Title: “The Confession App”
Scripture: Exodus 20:1-4, 7-9, 12-20
The “Ten Commandments” – a familiar and well-known passage for all of us as Christians. These commandments were given to us as children of God as guidelines for how to live with others and love one another, because the act of one person can affect a family and even a whole community.
Recently in my doing reseach for this up-coming meditation, I came across an app that Roman Catholics can access as well as we who are Christian. It is for real, “the Confession App”, and it is the first app to be officially sanctioned by the Vatican.
Do we need an “app” to remind us when we have sinned and that we need to ask God for forgiveness? Or can we simply turn to our Bibles to Exodus 20 to remind us of these commandments that protect us from committing evil? The “Ten Commandments” are divided into two sections that call us to examine our consciences.

Thought for the Week: What we think or what we believe is, in the end, of little consequence. The only thing of consequence is what we do. – John Ruskin
Let us pray: We give you thanks, O God, today and every day, for the wonders of your creation. We pray for wisdom, discernment and healing as we are blessed in this shared stewardship. May we see in every star, in every grain of sand, in every smile, in every living thing and human being, one more reason to give you our thanks and praise. We pray. Amen.
