A call to worship based on Psalm 91:
Even as we enter the wilderness of Lent,
We rest in the shelter of the Most High;
We abide in the shadow of the Almighty;
We find refuge under the wings of our Holy Parent.
We trust that the angels of God
the words of God
the people of God
the hands of God
Will somehow bear us up.
And so we come to call on God
who has promised to answer.
And an offertory prayer that we will use throughout Lent:
God of the Cross, in losing our lives, we find them in you. In sharing our resources, we enter more fully into your kingdom. May our offerings be part of your redeeming work of love and justice in our world. Amen.
