Third Sunday in Lent Sunday, March 7, 2021


INTRODUCTION OF THE DAY

The third covenant in this year’s Lenten readings is the central one of Israel’s history: the gift of the law to those God freed from slavery. The commandments begin with the statement that because God alone has freed us from the powers that oppressed us, we are to let nothing else claim first place in our lives. When Jesus throws the merchants out of the temple, he is defending the worship of God alone and rejecting the ways commerce and profit-making can become our gods. The Ten Commandments are essential to our baptismal call: centered first in God’s liberating love, we strive to live out justice and mercy in our communities and the world.

In the midst of a seemingly stable religious center, Jesus suggests that the center itself has changed.


PRAYERS OF INTERCESSION

Relying on the promises of God, we pray boldly for the church, the world, and all in need.

There is no God before you. Purify the faith of your church, that your people place their trust in nothing beside you. Your name is holy. Guide your church, that in every situation your people’s words and actions honor your name. Hear us, O God.
YOUR MERCY IS GREAT

The heavens declare your glory. Renew your creation. Provide leaders in the struggle for clean air and water; protect creatures and crops that rely on healthy ecosystems; give all people the willingness to repent when our way of life pollutes the earth and skies. Hear us, O God.
YOUR MERCY IS GREAT

Your foolishness is wiser than human wisdom. Fill leaders with the foolishness of your peace and mercy. Your law defends the vulnerable. Work through legislators, judicial systems, and systems of law enforcement to protect the wellbeing and freedom of all. Hear us, O God.

YOUR MERCY IS GREAT

Your weakness is stronger than human strength. Protect those who are vulnerable and give courage to all who are suffering. Defend victims of crime and bring redemption to those who have harmed others. Give Sabbath rest to all who labor. We especially pray for We especially pray for: Natasha Gagnon-Burchat, Marion Wisotzke, Eileen Warlich, Karen Weigold, Sherwood Lett, Ernie Plotz, Keith Weckwerth, Ellie Sommerville, Myles Newman, Leah Pringle, Delroy Hein, Cyril Waito, Shirley Glickman, Marilyn Schneider, Donna Hoffman, Emily Rhode, Stephanie Yourth, Christopher Yourth, Matthew Bowers, Beatrice Verch, Otto Mittag, Linda Tremblay, Peter Howell, Tina Howell, Sharon Verch, Brad Green, Debbie Thom, Jean Lett, Wanda Neuman, and Lorraine Selle.

In this moment of silence, we name out loud or in the quiet of our hearts, those who need your healing touch. (Pause)
Hear us, O God.
YOUR MERCY IS GREAT

You call us to proclaim Christ crucified. Give clarity to this congregation and our leaders, so that we might follow Christ beyond our own habits and comfort. Clear out anything in our common life that would obscure the gospel or that serves our own interests. Hear us, O God.
YOUR MERCY IS GREAT


The cross of Christ is your power for all who are being saved. Thank you for all the martyrs whose witness reveals the power of the cross. We also remember Ken Roesner who now rests with you and all the saints. Give us the same trust in life and in death. Hear us, O God.
YOUR MERCY IS GREAT

We entrust ourselves and all our prayers to you, O faithful God, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

BLESSING

The Lord bless you and keep you.
The Lord’s face shine on you with grace and mercy.
The Lord look upon you with favor and give you peace.

AMEN

7. Supporting Students in Schools of the ELCJHL



Supporting students at schools of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and the Holy Land
As schools around the world are now into the second half of the 2020-21 academic year in very challenging circumstances, so too are the students at schools of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and the Holy Land (ELCJHL). Earlier in the COVID-19 pandemic, the schools dealt with closures and lock down periods by embracing digital technology and distance learning. Sadly, the continued lock downs have impacted families served by the schools in many different ways. COVID-19 restrictions have meant further barricade closures and a significant loss of tourism for the region resulting in job loss and substantial reduction in income to household. Many families are now facing significant difficulties with paying tuition for the 2020-21 school year, which is on average $1,600/year per student.

The last forty years had seen a rise in theologies from Christian LGBTQ+ communities. This course will study the works of lesbian, gay and trans theologians, and will explore their contributions to the proclamation of the gospel.

"Creation and sub-creation: Social and Religious Themes in J.R.R. Tolkien's Fiction" (SL331) - May 10-21 by the Rev. Dr. William Harrison.

This course will be of special interest to people who are interested in addressing faith issues in a secular world.
