Thought for Meditation

[People] are born broken. We live by mending. The grace of God is glue. ~Anne Lamott 

 

Leader: This is the day the Lord has made;

People: Let us rejoice and be glad in it.

 

Welcome

Prelude and Bringing in the Light

 

Call to Worship 

One: Come, join the Lenten journey!

All: We hear the call to walk with Jesus.

One: Come, hear the stories!

All: Listening to all the ways they can help us see our lives.

One: For in the everyday nature of our lives,

All: Great meaning is present.

One: And so we celebrate the gift of life,

All: And the stories that we are helping create.

 

Hymn of Praise    “Come Thou Font of Every Blessing”     UMH 400

Come, Thou Fount of every blessing

Tune my heart to sing Thy grace

Streams of mercy, never ceasing

Call for songs of loudest praise

Teach me some melodious sonnet

Sung by flaming tongues above

Praise the mount, I’m fixed upon it

Mount of Thy redeeming love

 

Here I raise my Ebenezer

Here there by Thy great help I’ve come

And I hope, by Thy good pleasure

Safely to arrive at home

Jesus sought me when a stranger

Wandering from the fold of God

He, to rescue me from danger

Interposed His precious love

 

O to grace, how great a debtor,

daily I’m constrained to be!

Let thy goodness, like a fetter

bind my wandering heart to thee.

Prone to water, Lord I feel it,

print to leave the God I love;

here’s my heart, O take and seal it,

seal it for thy courts above.

And for this blessings, We lift our hands in praises

Without a doubt we know, That we have been revived

When we shall leave this place

Sending Prayer

God of Life, we seek your help as we continue this Lenten journey. We seek to know life in a deeper, more meaningful way. As we hear the stories of Jesus, may we find a place of connection and understanding. In his life journey, may we encounter love, acceptance, justice, and hope in ways that shape our journeys. Amen.

 

Hymn      “Blessed Assurance”     UMH 369

Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine

O what a foretaste of glory divine

Heir of salvation, purchase of God

Born of His Spirit, washed in His love

 

(chorus) This is my story, this is my song

Praising my Savior all the day long

This is my story, this is my song

Praising my Savior all the day long

 

Perfect submission, perfect delight, 

visions of rapture now burst on my sight; 

angels descending bring from above 

echoes of mercy, whispers of love.

 

Perfect submission, all is at rest

I in my Savior am happy and blessed

Watching and waiting, looking above

Filled with His goodness, lost in His love

         

Benediction
