WELCOME

Lent Litany

 

*CALL TO WORSHIP

One:    “Tell them that I need it,” says the Christ.  I need humble ones to carry my life, to bring hope to the people.  Who will carry the Christ today?

All:      We will be love.

One:    Who will bring hope to the people?

All:      We will be love.

One:    Stay beside me now as I travel, for tomorrow the way may not be so welcoming.

All:      We will be love.

PRAYER OF APPROACH

 

*Hymn VU #  123 Hosanna, Loud Hosanna

 

PRAYER OF CONFESSION

One:    Brave Christ, we know that we often lack your courage for good.  Sometimes it is hard to carry your life of love and so we leave it to others, or to another day. We are sorry, loving Jesus.

All:      We want to try again.

One:    Then there are times when, because we haven’t done things perfectly, we forget the fragile but true moments when we did lift your life high.  We can become discouraged, and feel like we are not good enough.  We are sorry, loving Jesus.

All:      We want to try again.

 

ASSURANCE OF PARDON

One:    Jesus the Christ refused to give up on love and Love never gives up on us.  A new day is before us.  We are forgiven.

All:      Thanks be to God. Amen.
