5th Sunday in Lent

 As we light this candle
 and look upon the flame,
 we feel the love of God and
 we remember the name of

 the light of the world.
 Remember Jesus,
 the light of the world.

              Call to Worship
      ~Please remain standing, as you are able~

One:God calls us to travel through the season
     of Lent where the promise of newness of
     life unfolds. During this time, we are
     called to wilderness wandering
All: where our burdens and brokenness are
One:We are called to venture through unknown
All: to face our deepest fears.
One:We are called to a dry and weary land
All: where our souls thirst for living water.
One:We are called to live in right relationship
All: to forgive and be forgiven.
One:We are called to places of need,
All: to risk extravagant giving.
One:Come join the Lenten journey with the
     God who is about to do a new thing!

Prayer of Unburdening
One:God of life, we often feel exhausted and
    depleted. Our frustration leads to despair
    and doubt, closing us off from others.
    Forgive us when we forget that we can
    make a difference in our work, our
    relationships, or even in our community.
    You are the Source of Life. Breathe
    energy into our burnt out spirits and our
    tired bodies. Help us to honour life as
    you created it.

One:We cannot find wholeness for ourselves
     unless we find wholeness for all that is.
     We cannot give to others unless we
     recognise what we have to give. Remind
     us in the darkness and loneliness of our
     journeys that we will experience your
     breathtaking presence, which will bring
     new purpose, new energy, new faith and
     new generosity.
All: Keep us from the darkness of this
     season. We offer our prayer awaiting
     renewal of our spirits.             …/vu684
