We Praise God!

Welcome and Lighting of the Christ Candle     Rev Megan Penfold

Call to Worship:

Leader: He was despised and forsaken by men, this man of suffering, grief’s patient friend. As if he was a person to avoid, we looked the other way;

Response: Look up! Here on the cross, this is our God.

Leader: Yet it was our suffering he carried, our pain and distress, our
sick-to-the-soulness. We just figured that God had rejected him.

Response: Look up! Here on the cross, this is our God.

Leader: He endured the breaking that made us whole. The injuries he
suffered became our healing. Look up! Here on the cross,
this is our God.

Response: We worship you, God of love for the gracious
sacrifice of Jesus Christ. Amen.

Praise :  O Sacred Head #239 Vrs 1, 3 and Lamb of God Vrs 1, 2, 3
