Sunday morning, March 15, 2020, The third Sunday in Lent, several of us met to join in some devotional exercises to celebrate the Third Sunday in Lent. In this video, you will find a Kyrie, a confession, our Sunday Prayer of the Faithful, a dramatic reading of the gospel, John 4:5-42, and a short meditation by Pastor Netsie.
If you have comments about how to best continue worship during these difficult times, please contact the pastors.
The Kyrie translates to:
Lord, have mercy. Christ have mercy
Confession and Forgiveness
All may make the sign of the cross, the sign marked at baptism, as the presiding minister begins.
Blessed be the holy Trinity, ☩ one God,
who is present, who gives life,
who calls into existence the things that do not exist.
If you were to keep watch over sins, O Lord, who could stand?
Yet with you is forgiveness, and so we confess.
have mercy on us.
We confess that we have turned away from you,
knowingly and unknowingly.
We have wandered from your resurrection life.
We have strayed from your love for all people.
Turn us back to you, O God.
Give us new hearts and right spirits,
that we may find what is pleasing to you
and dwell in your house forever. Amen.
Receive good news: God turns to you in love.
“I will put my spirit in you, and you shall live,” says our God.
All your sin is forgiven in the name of ☩ Jesus Christ,
who is the free and abounding gift of God’s grace for you.
