Centering Words (from Psalm 25 & Mark 1)

I offer my life to you, God, for I know that you love me dearly and faithfully.

I offer my life to you, God.  Teach me your paths.






Opening Hymn - O Love, How Deep, How Broad, How High - CP # 628


1. O love, how deep, how broad, how high,
it fills the heart with ecstasy,
that God, the Son of God, should take
our mortal form for mortals' sake!

2. He sent no angel to our race
of higher or of lower place,
but wore the robe of human frame
himself, and to this lost world came.

3. For us baptized, for us he bore
his holy fast and hungered sore,
for us temptation sharp he knew;
for us the tempter overthrew.

4. For us he prayed; for us he taught;
for us his daily works he wrought;
by words and signs and actions thus
still seeking not himself, but us.

7. To whom whose boundless love has won
salvation for us through his Son,
to God the Father, glory be
both now and through eternity.




The Grace

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all.  And also with you.


Kyrie Confession (from Common Worship)


You raise the dead to life in the Spirit:

Lord, have mercy. 

Lord, have mercy.


You bring pardon and peace to the broken in heart:

Christ, have mercy.

Christ, have mercy.


You make one by your Spirit the torn and divided:

Lord, have mercy.

Lord, have mercy.


A moment of silence for personal confession.




May the God of love and power

Forgive you and free you from your sins,

Heal and strengthen you by the Spirit,

And raise you to new life in Christ our Lord.  Amen.


Collect Prayer


God of trackless desert,

whose Son walked untamed in league with beasts and spirits,

whose kingdom is not distant but breaking in among us:

give us time and space

to find a new identity

to let go of control

and walk the pilgrim way;

Through Jesus Christ, the good news of salvation.  Amen.




Genesis 9:8-17, Psalm 25:1-10, 1 Peter 3:18-22, Mark 1:9-15

Prayers of the People

Written this week by Aeneas Lane



Lord’s Prayer


Our Father in heaven,

Hallowed be your name,

Your kingdom come,

Your will be done,

On earth as in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.

Forgive us our sins

As we forgive those who sin against us.

Save us from the time of trial,

And deliver us from evil.

For the kingdom, the power,

And the glory are yours,

Now and forever.  Amen.




God continues to tear open the heavens of our world and our lives, calling out with a voice of love:

“You are my beloved children, whom I love deeply.”

God continues to tear open the heavens of our world and our lives, sending us onto new paths and missions.

God changes our hearts and lives, and the Spirit pushes us in new directions.

“Now is the time!  Here comes God’s Kingdom!”

We are Jesus people.

We are kingdom people.
Now is the time!  Amen.



May God the Father,

who does not despise the broken spirit,

give to you a contrite heart.


May Christ,

who bore our sins in his body on the tree,

heal you by his wounds.


May the Holy Spirit,

who leads us into all truth,

speak to you words of pardon and peace.


And the blessing …



Closing Hymn - Forty Day and Forty Nights - CP # 175

1 Forty days and forty nights

You were fasting in the wild;

Forty days and forty nights

Tempted, and yet undefiled.


2 Shall not we Your sorrow share

And from worldly joys abstain,

Fasting with unceasing prayer,

Strong with You to suffer pain?


3 Then, if Satan on us press,

Flesh or spirit to assail,

Victor in the wilderness,

Grant we may not faint nor fail!


5 Keep, O keep us, Saviour dear,

Ever constant by Your side,

That with You we may appear

At the eternal Eastertide.
