Spiritual Practices ~ 3rd Sunday in Lent

Call to Worship: 

Children of God, it’s time to take off your shoes,

Let go of the anxieties and worries, and

Wade with trust into the stream of God’s compassionate grace.

We come to be still for a moment, to gather in holy time and space.

Let the healing waters wash your heart.

Take a deep breath as Love soaks into your soul.

We come to know again that we belong,

We are treasured by God,

Listen to the whispering of God

Let the conversations with God begin

We come with our questions

And with our deep desires

To re-orientate our lives in God.

Time with the Children ~ Gillian Cree
