WELCOME

 

LENT LITANY

 

 

*CALL TO WORSHIP

One:    Friends of God, welcome.  May the Spirit of Christ be with you.

All:      And also with you.

One:    As we begin the Season of Lent make yourself at home in the unfolding presence of Love that nestles, nourishes, and gives renewed strength for the jorney of faith.

All:      Amen.

PRAYER OF APPROACH

 

*Hymn VU #  507 Today We All Are Called to Be Disciples

 

PRAYER OF CONFESSION

One:    Grateful for forgiveness, O God, and amazed by your warmth of heart, we would be opened, giving words to difficult feelings, seeking healing for old, yet tender wounds.

All:      Hold us; in your love may we rest and be renewed.

One:    For the times we have deceived ourselves and others, with divided thoughts and purposes, creating emptiness of soul, and unhappy relationships.

All:      Hold us; in your love may we rest and be renewed.

One:    And for the times we remain silent, fearful of inner truths, resistant to real change and truthful, intimate exchange.

All:      Hold us; in your love may we rest and be renewed.

 

 

 

 

ASSURANCE OF PARDON

One:    Friends, in the mystery of God we are held and honoured.  We welcomed into a circle of Love that is ever widening, expanding to include all that we are and all that is.

All:      Thanks be to God. Amen.
