*Call to Worship (Read Responsively)
One: Our Lenten journey continues. Often the road has been stony and hard. Sometimes we have stumbled and even fallen.
Many: But God has been our friend and our guide. We have no cause to be alarmed. God is faithful to us, even when we are faithless.
One: Today we rejoice in God’s faithful love, and together ask for strength and signs of hope and life.
Many: And again we are drawn together to celebrate the life that is ours in Christ Jesus. Thanks be to God!
