Lent Worship Resource: Welcome/Benediction

Welcome/Benediction Script Lent 2021

Welcome

Reader One: The Bible says that after Jesus’ baptism the Holy Spirit drove Jesus into the wilderness where Satan tempted him and angels protected him.

Reader Two: The Bible says that Moses led God’s people on a 40 year journey through the wilderness to the Promised Land.

Reader Three: The spiritual path leads through the wilderness because the wilderness is where we meet God.

Reader Four: This Lenten season we will follow the examples of Jesus, of Moses, of countless ancestors before us and step into the unmapped and unknown areas of our lives. We will examine our doubts, fears, questions, visions, possibilities, and promises for the future trusting in God to guide us. Let’s prepare our hearts for worship. The adventure begins!

Benediction

Reader One: Our hearts are rested; our souls stirred; our vision sharpened; our bodies energized. We step into the new week with courage knowing that whatever we encounter, we are not alone. 

Reader Two: Go in peace to love God and share the good news of new life in Jesus!
