Lenten Reading John 2:13-22 Judy Napier
*Call to Worship
Someday, the house of God
will stand on the highest mountain.
People will come from every place
to learn how to walk in God’s path.
God will show us what is fair
and put an end to our fighting.
People will turn their old weapons
into new tools for mutual benefit and blessing.
Come, people of God.
Let us walk in the light of the Lord.
*Hymn 441 Hear the Good News of Salvation
Prayer of Confession
Holy God, you have called us to love you
with heart, mind, soul, and strength,
and to love our neighbors as ourselves.
But, if we are honest, we know
that sometimes we hurt each other and fail to keep our promises to you.
Forgive us, God of grace.
Teach us, day by day,
to turn away from what is wrong
and to turn to you in faith,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Hymn 698 Take, O Take Me As I Am
Assurance of Forgiveness
Hear the good news:
We are dead to sin and evil
and alive to God in Jesus Christ.
Friends, I urge you to walk in his light- forgiven, reconciled, and free!
