Centering Words:

From:  Maren C. Tirabsassi & Joan Jordan Grant


Holy and Gentle God, we confess that we want you to meet our expectations rather than changing our lives to meet yours.  We confess that we are often changeable and self-centered like the Jerusalem crowd, shouting, “Hosanna” one day, and “Crucify” the next.  We confess that we prefer the festivity of Palm Sunday to the quiet sadness of Holy Week.

Forgive us all our sins and help us take up our own cross to follow you, Amen.



Lord, help us – teach us – to follow you with reverence and with great JOY.
