Time for God: Time to be Changed

Gathering Music

Sharing Time

….a time of greeting and sharing those things which inform who we are as a community of faith and how God is moving among us. You are invited to welcome visitors, share joys, prayer requests, and announcements.

*Call to Worship

ONE:

It is time for a change. We are in need of a glimpse of Jesus who is the way through the mix and mess of this life.

ALL:

It is time for a change. We are in need of a glimpse of Jesus who is the truth – the truth that love is stronger than hate; peace is possible; and life can emerge even in the midst of devastation.

ONE:

We are in need of a glimpse of Jesus who is the life; inviting us to follow in his footsteps as he trod the way of love and justice, as he lived out his faith.

ALL:

May we be drawn to the rhythm of Lent as it unfolds in our midst; a sacred invitation to explore the corners of our soul. May we be open to God’s light that we might see ourselves clearly, with all our fears and faults and faith, with all our desires, dreams and duties.

ONE:

It is time for a change. Let us enter into worship.  Let us meet God – in the Holy Light.

— based on a prayer from Episcopal Church of St. John the Baptist, Lodi, CA
