Lenten Theme: Embracing the Uncertain
Today’s Theme: The Uncertainty of Surrender
“…Jesus said to him, ‘Today salvation has come to this house, because he too is a son of Abraham. For the Son of Man came to seek out and to save the lost.’” Luke 19:9-10 (NRSV)
God of grace, you call us into your glorious future. When we dwell on the past, you tell us to remember no longer the things of old. When we fail to notice the poor among us, you call us to give freely of what we have. When we are reluctant to share our gifts and talents, you give your own life so that we may live. Free us, Holy Spirit, from being self-absorbed and from fear. Amen.
Hold fast to these words of assurance: “As God’s children, forgiven and free, we are blessed to give our best gifts in God’s name.”
Sisters and brothers, let us stand firm in Christ. Let us trust God’s promises in all things and take shelter in the Spirit’s loving arms in challenging times. Go in peace, to love and serve the world.
I hope you enjoy this week's online service. Please share it with family and friends. Blessings!
