Welcome to Mayflower

Open to God Open to All

Lenten Liturgy

We are not the first to journey to Jerusalem;

the people of Israel believed they were closest to God there.

From near and far, God’s people gathered to celebrate

God’s goodness on the holy mountain.

We are pilgrims on a journey.

We are travellers on the road.

Jesus made the journey to Jerusalem many times.

As a child and a teen, he entered the city with his parents.

Now he has set his face toward Jerusalem again,

knowing this time will be different.

We are pilgrims on a journey.

We are travellers on the road.

Jesus’ last journey to Jerusalem is somber.

He has no illusions about the outcome.

Still, he marches on, doing God’s will.

Unison prayer:

God of light, we want to follow in

Jesus’ footsteps, but we are afraid.

We would rather avoid the pain

and darkness along the way.

Give us courage to walk these

difficult steps.

Prepare us to be changed

on the road. Amen.

StF – 53How Shall I sing that majesty

slide10

How shall I sing that majesty

which angels do admire?

Let dust in dust and silence lie;

sing, sing, ye heavenly choir.

Thousands of thousands stand around

thy throne, O God most high;

ten thousand times ten thousand sound

thy praise; but who am I?

slide11

Thy brightness unto them appears,

whilst I thy footsteps trace;

a sound of God comes to my ears,

but they behold thy face.

They sing because thou art their sun;

Lord, send a beam on me;

for where heaven is but once begun

there alleluias be.

slide12

How great a being, Lord, is thine,

which doth all beings keep!

Thy knowledge is the only line

to sound so vast a deep.

Thou art a sea without a shore,

a sun without a sphere;

thy time is now and evermore,

thy place is everywhere.

Psalm 121

Psalm 121

1 I lift up my eyes to the hills,

from where is my help to come?

2 My help comes from the Lord,

the maker of heaven and earth.

slide16

3 He will not suffer your foot to stumble;

he who watches over you will not sleep.

4 Behold, he who keeps watch over Israel,

shall neither slumber nor sleep.

slide17

5 The Lord himself watches over you;

the Lord is your shade at your right hand,

6 So that the sun shall not strike you by day,

neither the moon by night.

slide18

7 The Lord shall keep you from all evil;

it is he who shall keep your soul.

8 The Lord shall keep watch over your going out

and your coming in,

from this time forth for evermore.

Come Let Us Sing of a Wonderful Love

slide20

Jesus, the Saviour, this gospel to tell,

joyfully came;

came with the helpless and hopeless to dwell,

sharing their sorrow and shame;

seeking the lost,

saving, redeeming at measureless cost.

Jesus, the Saviour, this gospel to tell,

joyfully came;

came with the helpless and hopeless to dwell,

sharing their sorrow and shame;

seeking the lost,

slide22

Jesus is seeking the wanderers yet;

why do they roam?

Love only waits to forgive and forget;

home, weary wanderer, home!

Wonderful love

dwells in the heart of the Father above.

slide23

Come to my heart, O thou wonderful love,

come and abide,

lifting my life, till it rises above

envy and falsehood and pride;

seeking to be

lowly and humble, a learner of thee.

Robert Walmsley (1831-1905)

jesus and nicodemus1

2 One night he went to Jesus and said to him, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher sent by God. No one could perform the miracles you are doing unless God were with him.”

Jesus and Nicodemus
jesus and nicodemus2

3 Jesus answered, “I am telling you the truth: no one can see the Kingdom of God without being born again.”4 “How can a grown man be born again?” Nicodemus asked. “He certainly cannot enter his mother's womb and be born a second time!”

Jesus and Nicodemus
jesus and nicodemus3

5 “I am telling you the truth,” replied Jesus. “No one can enter the Kingdom of God without being born of water and the Spirit.6 A person is born physically of human parents, but is born spiritually of the Spirit.

Jesus and Nicodemus
jesus and nicodemus4

7 Do not be surprised because I tell you that you must all be born again.8 The wind blows wherever it wishes; you hear the sound it makes, but you do not know where it comes from or where it is going. It is like that with everyone who is born of the Spirit.”

Jesus and Nicodemus
jesus and nicodemus5

9 “How can this be?” asked Nicodemus.10 Jesus answered, “You are a great teacher in Israel, and you don't know this?

Jesus and Nicodemus

11 I am telling you the truth: we speak of what we know and report what we have seen, yet none of you is willing to accept our message.

Jesus and Nicodemus
jesus and nicodemus7

12 You do not believe me when I tell you about the things of this world; how will you ever believe me, then, when I tell you about the things of heaven?13 And no one has ever gone up to heaven except the Son of Man, who came down from heaven.”

Jesus and Nicodemus
jesus and nicodemus8

14 As Moses lifted up the bronze snake on a pole in the desert, in the same way the Son of Man must be lifted up,15 so that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life.

Jesus and Nicodemus
jesus and nicodemus9

16 For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not die but have eternal life.17 For God did not send his Son into the world to be its judge, but to be its saviour.

Help us, O Lord, to learn

slide43

Help us, O Lord, to learn

the truths your word imparts,

to study that your laws may be

inscribed upon our hearts.

slide44

Help us, O Lord, to live

the faith which we proclaim,

that all our thoughts and words

and deeds may glorify your name.

slide45

Help us, O Lord, to teach

the beauty of your ways,

that all who seek may find the Christ,

and make a life of praise.

Teach me, my God and King

slide49

Teach me, my God and King,

in all things thee to see,

and what I do in anything,

to do it as for thee.

slide50

For those who look on glass

on it may stay the eye;

or if it pleases, through it pass,

and then the heaven espy.

slide51

All may of thee partake:

nothing can be so mean,

which with this tincture, 'For thy sake'

will not grow bright and clean.

slide52

A servant with this clause

makes drudgery divine;

who sweeps a room, as for thy laws,

makes that and the action fine.

slide53

This is the famous stone

that turneth all to gold;

for that which God doth touch and own

cannot for less be told.

Fill thou my life

slide58

Fill thou my life, O Lord my God,

in every part with praise,

that my whole being may proclaim

thy being and thy ways.

slide59

Not for the lip of praise alone

nor e'en the praising heart

I ask, but for a life made up

of praise in every part:

slide60

Praise in the common things of life,

its goings out and in;

praise in each duty and each deed,

however small and mean.

slide61

Fill every part of me with praise;

let all my being speak

of thee and of thy love, O Lord,

poor though I be and weak.

slide62

So shalt thou, gracious Lord, from me

receive the glory due;

and so shall I begin on earth

the song for ever new.

slide63

So shall no part of day or night

from sacredness be free;

but all my life, in every step,

be fellowship with thee.

Horatius N. Bonar (1808-1889)
