WE GATHER TO WORSHIP

CALL TO WORSHIP:

Come and travel the road of faith.We gather as God’s people in this Lenten time.Open yourselves to God’s call, God’s presence, God’s love.

To God be the glory and praise!HYMN : O Love How Deep" 348

PRAYER OF APPROACH:

We enter into this place, at the beginning of this Lenten journey, O God. On this journey we know we will encounter darkness and death. We gather, seeking strength in our passage through a desert, of unfulfilled hopes and expectations. When we are hungry, when we are given power we do not want or seek, when our faith in you is put to the test, may we continue to seek and know your love. Be present God, in the journey that is ahead of us. Be present as we pray together, Our Father...
