A Collect to Confront One Another Directly

Rabbi, who knows the truth of our hearts, remind us of our call to confront one another directly when we are troubled, that we might not fall prey to gossip or shame one another in spreading one another’s faults but might call one another to account lovingly and so encourage and strengthen each other toward goodness, through you reigns with the Father and Holy Spirit, one God in perfect unity. Amen. “If another member of the church sins against you, go and point out the fault when the two of you are alone. If the member listens to you, you have regained that one.” – Matt. 18:15
