Call to Worship
Leader: Together we seek the way of God,
People: who makes a way in the sea and provides rivers in the desert.
Leader: God fills our lives with love and beauty as sweet fragrance fills the air.
People: We live within the abundance of God,
Leader: so let us laugh and shout for joy
All: as we worship God together.
Lenten Prayer of Confession
Leader: Holy One, we seek you while you may be found.
People: We call upon you while you are near.
Leader: Have mercy on us, O God, for our thoughts are not your thoughts and our ways are not your ways.
People: Forgive us for believing the myth of scarcity. Help us live into your abundance.
Leader: As we walk with Christ on the Lenten journey, let us see your way more clearly
All: and follow your way more faithfully.
