Why do we confess sins in worship?

In the churches I grew up attending, I don't ever remember having a time during the worship service when we confessed our sin to God as a congregation. So when I began attending churches where confession was practiced, it was a new experience for me. Why do some churches (such as ACC) include confession of sin as an element of worship? This blog article by Trevin Wax share some good thoughts on this matter.
