Call to Worship ๐Ÿ™Œ 

Here, at the outer limits of Lent,

we are called to walk:

to the paper-thin edges which cut us

     to the soul;

to the workplaces which weary us;

to the people who confuse us;

to the faith which threatens us.

Here, at the corner of Steadfast Love

and Faithfulness, we are called to wait:

when our clenched stomachs awaken us;

in the moments of unbearable sorrow;

with the angels who would carry us.

Here, where time is fulfilled,

where God's Kingdom is as near to us

as our neighbor, we begin Lent:

with the Beloved, whose tears wash away

    our fears,

with the God who will not let go

    of our hands.


Confession of Sin๐Ÿ™ 

Forgive

   the silly sins of childhood,

   the exuberant sins of adolescence,

   the faded sins of aging;

forgive

   the sins we shout in the streets,

   the sins we whisper to ourselves;

forgive

   the sins we didn't give a second thought to,

   the sins we plot in the middle of the night;

forgive

   the flood of sins which threaten us,

   the wilderness of sin which we offer to others,

   the sin which seeks to imprison us:

forgive.


Forgive us, Good and Gentle God,

forgive us and have mercy on us,

so we might walk the path of faithfulness

with Jesus, to Jerusalem and beyond,

so we might know your steadfast love in our lives.
