Quartet - VT 325 | O Sacred Head Now Wounded, Vs. 1 and 2
Call to Worship
On this night, as the shadows deepen,
We come to be present with Jesus.
With the glory of Palm Sunday behind us and the victory of Easter not yet come,
We will sit together in this space with our listening and breaking hearts.
In this world that is at once beautiful and tragic,
We seek to be present with all who suffer.
We will be present with ourselves
In the dark valleys of life, when sorrow threatens to overwhelm,
We long for a safe and sacred space to sit with our grief and our questions.
Jesus Christ, holy friend,
We know that you are here with us.
Let us be here with you. Amen.
VT 317 | Go to Dark Gethsemane
Prayer of Confession | VT 1012
O Tree of Calvary,
send your roots deep down into my heart
Gather together the soil of my heart,
the sands of my fickleness,
the mud of my desires.
Bind them all together, O Tree of Calvary,
interlace them with your strong roots,
entwine them with the network of your love.
VT 318 | ‘Tis midnight and on Olive’s brow
Holy, loving, suffering God,
Give us eyes to see
the injustice and suffering that abound.
Give us hearts to feel
the depth of this world’s brokenness.
Give us ears now to hear
the words of your passion.
